Faculty, students won’t feel safe until security is enhanced at UNLV

Gov. Joe Lombardo’s office is weighing possible steps to bolster security on campus across the Nevada System of Higher Education in the wake of an active shooter at UNLV earlier this month killing three professors and seriously injuring another, his staff told the Sun. Clark County Sheriff Kevin McMahill said the business school building did not have interior security cameras, making it difficult for investigators to piece together the sequence of events. UNLV President Keith Whitfield has repeatedly said in the days after the shooting that the university will seek funds for enhanced security — such as cameras for all the university’s buildings.
