Cheyenne Police Department has increased security for Frontier Days

Cheyenne, Wyo. (KGWN) - Last year at Cheyenne Frontier Days, we hosted Jason Aldean at our open-air venue, much like the one in Las Vegas that ended in a shooting massacre.

Law enforcement is using new equipment this year to protect festival goers. The Cheyenne Police Department has set up the Mobile Observation Platform.

The unit has multiple cameras and gunshot location technology. One of the most useful features about the platform is that it can be monitored in real time.

Residents and visitors have expressed that this technology is making them feel more at ease.
