USC Upgrades Security After Halloween Shooting

November 06, 2012  | 

In the wake of last week's shooting on campus, USC on Tuesday announced a new set of heightened security measures, including visitor restrictions and mandatory identification checks on anyone seeking to enter the main campus between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. 

In addition, outside promoters will be banned from working on USC social events held at campus facilities or on nearby Fraternity Row, according to USC President C.L. Max Nikias. Last week's shooting, which wounded four people—none of them USC students—occured outside a Halloween party that had been promoted by a non-USC firm that invited young people from across the city.

The new rules, which will be rolled out immediately and fully implemented by January, will make USC's main campus a somewhat more closed place, Nikias conceded in a telephone interview. But he described it as "a small inconvenience given how strongly I feel about the safety and security of the campus."
