The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Special Investigation Section teamed up with Clark County Business License agents this weekend and served 36 warning letters, 7 suspensions and 4 citations to non-essential area businesses that were not complying with state orders to shut down. Of the 113 business that were visited by the compliance team, the 7 suspensions resulted in forced shutdowns of businesses that would not voluntarily close. The LVMPD has released a video to underscore the need for the non-essential business closures, citing the need to stop the fast spread of the COVID-19 virus to ensure public health. Anyone wishing to see the video can visit LVMPD’s Twitter or Youtube pages. Business owners who are still uncertain about what category they fall under can visit the state’s website at: https://nvhealthresponse.nv.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/NVHealth-Response-COVID19.pdf
Anyone who would like to report a non-essential business in the city of Las Vegas or Clark County can dial LVMPD’s non-emergency 3-1-1 line.
