North Las Vegas considers eliminating judge position

The city of North Las Vegas is looking into eliminating one of its municipal court judges.

City leaders say the decision comes after a steep drop in the number of cases the court hears.

Home involved in deadly fire had no smoke detectors

A young girl and her grandmother are still in the hospital in critical condition following Thursday night's deadly fire in North Las Vegas.

Firefighters say the home did not have smoke detectors and this incident is a tragic reminder of how important it is to have the devices installed in your home.

"We're always talking about that there's no guarantee, but at least you can try and put in place safety measures. If it were a drowning, it'd be gates and doors and things of that nature. If there's a fire in your home, there's no better detection right now than a smoke detector in your home," said Cedric Williams of the North Las Vegas Fire Department.

According to Williams, smoke detectors with the pre-installed batteries cost around $15 to $25 and last anywhere from 7 to 10 years.

You can get them at most home improvement stores or order them online.

The fire claimed the life of the grandfather also inside the home... Read More

New program to register home surveillance systems with Metro

For the first time, Metro is asking valley homeowners to notify them if they have a home surveillance system.

It will make it easier for them to look for video when a crime is committed.

Currently, when officers respond to a crime scene, they have to look around for any cameras that might have picked something up. It takes time to find the owners and look at the video.

If people with security cameras register with the department, police will have a list of addresses and contact numbers so they can quickly ask permission to see video that often helps solve crimes. The new program is called Vegas SafeCam and is already in use in Philadelphia, Buffalo, and Salt Lake City.

Registering your surveillance system with the department is completely voluntary. However, the more privately owned cameras they have on record, the more effective the program will be... Read More
