Skift reports that the Nashville tourism board became the latest organization to offer grants to its city police department to ensure the safety of tourists.

The tourism board announced last month that it plans to give a $100,000 annual grant to the city’s police department and is also lobbying the city to use $150,000 from another city tax fund to help offset police overtime pay at special events this year.

Nashvillle’s program mirrors efforts in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, the city’s tourism board, was in close contact with local police shortly after the shooting last year and used its platforms to amplify public safety messages.
