Local casinos and security personnel are reacting to the tragic events in Las Vegas.
“The safety of our guests and crew members is of the utmost importance to us, and we deploy our security resources as best we can to have an active and visible presence,” said Margaritaville in a statement.
Safety is the number one concern of these two local casinos and they say they are prepared for incidents, at any time.
“We are constantly reviewing our security policies and practices to keep our guests and employees safe.” said the Horseshoe Casino in an emailed statement. “We are working very closely with law enforcement….”
Local law enforcement says they practice safety and emergency protocols yearly.
“These situations can happen anywhere so the best thing you can do is be proactive and prepare for it as if it was going to happen tomorrow,” says Matt Harris with the Louisiana State Police. “That way, if it doesn’t happen, you’re good. But if it odes happen, you’re ready.”
