The Baltimore Police Department faces a new challenge: keeping the new Horseshoe Casino, its guests and the area around it secure.
Among plans to keep things safe are the department's plans to include a new casino mini-district. Also, many of the officers that will patrol the casino were hand-picked to be a part of the detail.
“We know this is going to be yet another area that draws in a lot of tourists, and we want to be able to show our city in the best light. So, it is very important to have some very well-trained professional officers out there."
Tonight at 6 p.m. on In Focus, we take a closer look at the plans to police the new Horseshoe Casino and the area around it. We’ll also explain how Maryland Live provided a blueprint for casino security in our state.
