This means the casinos can only have unarmed security guards, unless they hire off-duty police officers.
In the wake of the two carjacking incidents, Trump Entertainment has requested that the state Division of Gaming Enforcement change the regulations. Trump Entertainment hopes that if these changes occur it will prevent future incidents from occurring as well as aid in making all of Atlantic City safer and help in the cleaning up of the city’s image.
“It would be a new step, and we certainly would have to defer to the legal experts to see the viability of such a program within the casinos,” said Tom Gilbert, Atlantic City Tourism District Commander.
Division of Gaming Enforcement representatives declined comment Monday, but said they will likely disclose more details later this week.
