The Secret Service spent all day Tuesday preparing for Wednesday's debate. They spent the entire afternoon sweeping the debate site and surrounding perimeter, looking for potential security issues.

The agency has worked with local law enforcement to make sure the debate goes off without incident.

The enormous undertaking for the Secret Service to organize security ahead of the final debate has been a month's long process that has involved every single law enforcement agency in southern Nevada.

On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will be escorted by motorcade to the Thomas & Mack Center at UNLV.
