Securing Las Vegas: Businesses Receive Millions in Funding for Enhanced Security Measures

Las Vegas businesses receive nearly $1 million to enhance security measures, applications still open for those in need

The City of Las Vegas has been awarding grants to businesses in order to improve their security measures. Over $1 million has already been distributed, with nearly 80 businesses receiving up to $10,000 each to help secure their properties. The Business Security Grant Program covers expenses like lighting, security cameras, locks and more.

Recent break-ins at local businesses have emphasized the importance of security measures. Tacotarian, one of the recipients, used the funding to upgrade their camera system which proved useful in identifying the perpetrators of a recent break-in. However, they acknowledge that cameras alone are not enough for complete security.

Since the program began in March, over $750,000 has been awarded to 79 businesses in Las Vegas. Recipients such as Chops Barbershop and 18bin have utilized the funding for various security enhancements like new locks, lighting and camera systems to deter theft and improve public safety.

There is still approximately $250,000 in funding available for businesses within Las Vegas city limits that meet the eligibility criteria. Once selected, businesses receive funds via check after a formal agreement is in place, a process that typically takes around 30 days. Interested businesses can access the application for the grants through a provided link.
