Where to Find the Best Las Vegas Safe Locksmiths
Admittedly, the search term “locksmith Las Vegas” did not turn up a plethora of quality safe locksmith choices. It seems that sin city is still a bit like the wild west when it comes to reputable locksmiths.
Let’s take a look at the state of the law in Nevada and whether any professional trade organizations can help in the search for a quality Las Vegas Locksmith.
Nevada Locksmith Laws and Certification Requirements
evada does have at least one statute relevant to the certification of locksmiths, Nevada Revised Statue 655.070. This statute requires a Locksmith or a Safe Mechanic to get a work permit.
Each county must determine the extent of the work permit requirements. In some cases, like Las Vegas, Henderson and other larger cities, the city government issues the work permit.
Requirements vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but typically require criminal background and fingerprint checks.
Locksmith Las Vegas Trade Associations
Some websites list the Nevada Professional Locksmith Association Inc. as the trade association for the state. I could find no website for this entity and very little corroborating evidence of its existence. As such, I do not place much credence in its existence or trust worthiness.
