NBC 7 Investigation Inspires State Bill to Improve Security Industry

State Assemblyman Jim Cooper is working on a bill to clean up California’s security industry after seeing NBC 7’s February investigation that exposed the local underground industry of untrained, unlicensed security officers.

The story came after two local deaths involving bouncers – one where the bouncer was arrested and charged for involuntary manslaughter and the other where the death was ruled a homicide. The San Diego Police Department forwarded that investigation to the San Diego County District Attorney’s office for review.
