CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie says he's frustrated by the lack of input sought from local law enforcement agencies as the Department of Homeland Security decides how its grant money should be spent.

His comments came during the Nevada Commission on Homeland Security meeting Friday when state leaders approved 18 grant-funded projects with a total price tag of nearly $3.3 million.

The first six projects funded deal with event responses, not prevention. Those accounted for about $516,000 of the money.

The seventh item was a prevention-oriented project through the Southern Nevada Counter Terrorism Center. That project received a nearly $750,000 allocation, mainly for computers.
