Las Vegas Police share what they've learned with Lincoln

By  | 

LINCOLN, (Neb.) Hundreds of people who keep Lincoln safe now have a better idea of what happened the night a shooter opened fire into a concert in Las Vegas.

On Thursday Las Vegas Metro Deputy Police Chief Chris Jones talked to first responders, police officers and doctors about what his department has learned from what is now the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Jones said body cam footage like the video that was recently released has really helped his department and has had a huge impact on how they now operate. "There are several changes that we've made in the security industry in our city. We have made changes to how we handle open air events . We have made significant changes as to how we ensure a person does not get as many weapons as he did into one location," said Jones.

Jones said cities across the country have asked his department to share what they've learned. Then number one thing he hopes Lincoln safety officials get out of this presentation is the importance of partnerships because when a disaster strikes everyone needs to know how to work together.
