SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Scottsdale City Council has approved a new local law imposing new public safety requirements on bars and nightclubs in the wake of the January stabbing of a bar's bouncer.
The ordinance approved on a 5-2 vote Tuesday night requires bars and clubs to beef up their security.
KPHO-TV (http://bit.ly/1eDDnJ7 reports that the law's provisions include a requirement for security staffing and for a safety plan that must be submitted to police.
The staffing requirements include having off-duty police officers under some circumstances.
The law is a reaction to the stabbing death of Martini Ranch Tyrice Thompson. He died while trying to break up a fight outside the club.
