Alarm and security businesses bear the burden of serious responsibility. Not only do they protect homes and businesses from threat and violence, but they are entrusted with knowing when people come and go – and their very lives. The amount of knowledge and care required has prompted states to combat abuse, fraud and scams by requiring alarm and security companies to hold licenses. Many cities further these measures with local permits and registrations.
What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but it takes a fair number of licenses and permits to make it happen. Despite Las Vegas’ fairly wild image and Nevada’s well-know business friendliness, both the state and city regulates a fair number of business-types.

However, Las Vegas has made efforts to diversify its economy and now has light manufacturing and banking sectors.
