Security Measures at a Casino


A casino is a gambling establishment that offers games of chance to its customers. These include slot machines, roulette, blackjack, baccarat, craps, poker and many other types of table games.

A reputable casino will employ security measures to prevent crime from occurring within its premises. This includes a physical security force and specialized surveillance department. The physical security force patrols the premises and responds to calls for assistance and reports of suspicious or definite criminal activity.

The specialized surveillance department operates the casino’s closed circuit television system. The specialized surveillance department works very closely with the physical security force to ensure that all activities at the casino are conducted legally and safely.

In addition to the physical security force, a good casino will also have a team of trained dealers and other employees on the premises who watch over casino patrons. These people are the best at reading people and their betting patterns, and can spot blatant cheats like palming or switching cards or dice.
