GAMING CHIEF LEARNING AFTER "HORRIFYING TIME" IN VEGAS

By Colin A. Young
STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, OCT. 12, 2017.....In the wake of the mass shooting that left 58 dead in Las Vegas last week, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission began talking to regulators in other states about what casinos can do to prevent or respond to shootings and terrorist attacks.

At least three of the state's top gaming regulators were in Las Vegas for an industry conference that began the morning after the Oct. 1 mass shooting and said at Thursday's commission meeting that casino safety was at the forefront of everyone's mind.

"As a commission, we need to be cognizant of public safety issues, which we are, and as with any major public safety incident, we will be attentive to the after-action plans and lessons learned," Gaming Commission Executive Director Edward Bedrosian said. "As part of the conference and meeting with other regulators, we were able to actually start some of those best practice conversations with other regulators around things like active shooter exercises specific to casinos."
