When you live in a security apartment, work in a high-security building or visit a nightclub or casino with security on the premises, it’s reasonable to expect a certain degree of safety. In fact, that’s one of the reasons property owners make security so visible — to give us that sense of security. But personal injuries due to negligent security are rife in Las Vegas. Here are the minimum requirements for properties:
- If security cameras are visible, we expect them to be operating.
- If security officers are on duty, we expect that they are watching cameras, doing patrols and checking people entering the building.
- If a nightclub, casino or bar has a bouncer, we expect the bouncer will handle rowdy patrons and that he will do so in a professional manner.
We don’t expect that security lapses will leave patrons vulnerable to theft, assault, rape or murder. When that happens, property owners can — and should — be held accountable.
