In response to a recent spate of burglaries at local businesses in Las Vegas, the city is offering grants to help improve security measures. Nearly $1 million has already been distributed through the Business Security Grant Program, which provides up to $10,000 to eligible businesses to help secure their property.

Tacotarian, one of the grant recipients, used the funds to upgrade its camera system, which proved instrumental in identifying the perpetrators of a recent burglary. While cameras can be helpful in preventing theft, the business admits that complete security cannot be achieved solely through this means.

Since its inception in March, over $750,000 has been awarded to 79 Las Vegas businesses through the program. Recipients such as Chops Barbershop and 18bin have used the funds for a variety of security improvements, including new locks, lighting and camera systems.

There is still about $250,000 in financing available for businesses within the Las Vegas city limits that meet the eligibility criteria. Once selected, businesses receive funds by check after a formal agreement, a process that usually takes about 30 days. Interested companies can access the grant application via the given link.
