Disney increases security as a result of Orlando shooting

Disney increases security after US shootings

Disney has increased security at its Orlando theme parks after 49 people were killed and at least 53 others were injured in a mass shooting at a gay nightclub.

“Unfortunately we’ve all been living in a world of uncertainty, and during this time we have increased our security measures across our properties, adding such visible safeguards as magnetometers, additional canine units, and law enforcement officers on site, as well as less visible systems that employ state-of-the-art security technologies,” a spokesperson for Disney told FOXBusiness.com.

29-year-old gunman Omar Mateen had reportedly scouted Walt Disney World, according to Reuters which cited two officials briefed on the investigation.

Disney is also set to open Shanghai Disney its first park in Mainland China.

Many companies who support a large number of visitors on a daily basis have been stepping up security following various mass killings in recent months in the United States, including the San Bernardino, California shootings which killed 14 people and injured 22 in December.

Attacks targeting the United States, France, and other regions of the world have generated a lot of discussion about security standards for many US companies and firms abroad.
