This month on Las Vegas City Scene we take a look at the latest identity theft scams hitting Las Vegas. Tax season typically means an increased effort by criminals to steal your money and personal information. The Attorney General’s Office has some tips on how to protect yourself.
Also, if you have aspirations to become a firefighter with Las Vegas Fire and Rescue, we have some advice from a recruiting expert on what to expect. Plus, we break down the Southern Nevada’s regional recruitment effort and how you can apply for the next round.
Finally, we are talking with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Nevada. The organization has more than 500 children on the waiting list, waiting to be paired with a mentor.

He also explains how much funding is left and available for future projects.
Plus, every time you gas up your car, you’re helping pay for road construction projects all over Las Vegas.

Also, it’s more than just road construction, fuel revenue indexing is creating thousands of jobs. The city’s transportation manager will help explain.
