Strip Security Chiefs Association meets following shooting

One of the looming question since the shooting is what hotels and casinos on the Strip will do security-wise in response to Sunday's deadly shooting near Mandalay Bay Casino and Hotel.
On Thursday, the Las Vegas Security Chiefs Association met at Caesar's Palace to discuss the issue.

The group is made up of all of the casinos, major event facilities and police on the Strip. The meeting that was scheduled months ago took place at a very sensitive time.

The meeting wasn't public, but those 8 News NOW spoke wit who attended it, said Sunday's massacre wasn't discussed in too great detail, but changes for Strip properties are being considered. In fact, some are said to already be in place.

For example, the Wynn and Encore have added metal detectors for bags in its hotel rooms. And while policies and procedures are one aspect, the actions of individual security officers are getting highlighted as well. Particularly, Jesus Campos, identified as the Mandalay Bay security guard who led Metro Police to the suspect, while he was injured.

Campos was still in the hospital Thursday recovering from his injuries.
