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 providing financial support to businesses in the form of grants, with over $1 million already distributed. This initiative, known as the Business Security Grant Program, offers up to $10,000 to eligible businesses in order to improve their security measures. Funds can be used for a variety of expenses, including lighting, security cameras, locks and more.

Recent break-ins at local businesses have highlighted the importance of having proper security measures in place. Tacotarian, a recipient of the grant, was able to use the funding to upgrade their camera system which proved useful in identifying thieves in a recent break-in. While cameras are helpful they acknowledge that they are not enough on their own for complete security.

Since its launch in March, the program has awarded over $750,000 to 79 businesses within Las Vegas city limits. These recipients have put the funding towards various security enhancements such as 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 eligibility criteria. Once selected businesses receive funds via check after a formal agreement is in place which usually takes around 30 days. Interested businesses can access the application for the grants through a provided link.
