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 grants to businesses in order to improve their security, with over $1 million already distributed. The Business Security Grant Program offers up to $10,000 to eligible businesses for security measures such as lighting, cameras, locks and more.

The recent increase in break-ins at local businesses has highlighted the importance of having proper security measures in place. Tacotarian, one of the recipients of the grant, used the funding to upgrade their camera system which helped identify the perpetrators of a recent break-in. However, they acknowledge that cameras alone are not enough for complete security.

Since March 2021, over $750,000 has been awarded to 79 businesses in Las Vegas through this program. Chops Barbershop and 18bin are among the recipients who have utilized the funding for various security enhancements such as new locks, lighting and camera systems. This has helped 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. Interested businesses can access the application for these grants through a provided link. Once selected, businesses receive funds via check after a formal agreement is in place which typically takes around 30 days
