Editorial: Club Security

The best club security bar none in Orlando takes place at CityWalk.  Located in the rotunda building, all guests entering CityWalk (as well as the theme parks) must pass through bag checks and metal detectors. There are several clubs downtown that make you empty your pockets, frisk you and use handheld metal detecting devices, but Universal's airport-style metal detectors backed by excellent Universal Security and OPD officers far exceed the competition.
There is no evidence that this level of security could have prevented the tragedy at Pulse, but it has no doubt prevented less serious events. This is sadly the future of nightclub security and it needs to be implemented everywhere. Now.

Didn't he just go running into Pulse right past security with the guns?

I don't know, but the intent of my article is to raise awareness as to the need for better searches for guns and knives at all clubs. It would not have stopped what happened at Pulse but it could stop other crimes committed in nightclubs.
