North Vegas Police Receive Federal Grant
(North Las Vegas, NV) — Cash-strapped North Las Vegas has received some help for its police department.
Senator Harry Reid says the city has been awarded a nearly two-million dollar federal grant. The money can be used to hire as many as 14 officers.
The grant comes as North Vegas takes steps to eliminate a budget deficit of more than 30-million dollars. The city recently suspended pay and benefit increases for union workers.
