Las Vegas Metropolitan police officers Tod Williams (L) and Sgt. Victor Vigna set up a barricade on The Strip outside the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, at about 7:30 p.m. on December 31, 2003. Almost every police officer is on duty for the New Year's Eve holiday as part of enhanced security efforts to prevent any possible terrorist attack. Police typically shut down vehicle traffic on The Strip as people flood the famous street to celebrate the New Year. REUTERS/Ethan Miller EM
