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

Over the past few months, the City of Las Vegas has been distributing grants to businesses in order to improve their security. The Business Security Grant Program provides up to $10,000 to eligible businesses to help them secure their properties, covering expenses like lighting, security cameras, locks and more.

The importance of security measures has been highlighted after a recent series of break-ins at local businesses. Tacotarian, a recipient of the grant, 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 sufficient for complete security.

Since March 2021, over $750,000 has been awarded to 79 businesses in Las Vegas through this program. Recipients like Chops Barbershop and 18bin have utilized the funding for various security enhancements such as new locks and lighting 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 – typically within 30 days. Interested businesses can access the application for the grants through a provided link on the city’s website.
