Local leaders are going door to door teaching businesses how to be safe near Hollywood and Lake Mead boulevards.

County Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick said the project began 8 months ago.

Since then, Kirkpatrick and officers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department have visited more than 900 businesses.   

The goal is to ensure owners are on alert to potential threats, Kirkpatrick said.

The common sense measures include having bright lights outside the building and a surveillance system.
