LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Police Department's Counter-Terrorism and Special Operations Bureau will meet with private security leaders to discuss lessons learned from a Nairobi terrorist attack that left 67 people dead last weekend.
Deputy Chief Michael Downing, who will lead the discussion, says the Oct. 15 meeting will include heads of private security representing some 45,000 security guards, including those who work at malls, hotels, clubs, sporting venues and high-rises.
He says the group will talk about how to deal with shooters, how to identify and protect vulnerable areas frequented by the public, such as the upscale mall that was attacked, and how to improve the exchange of information among security people.
