Raleigh Ordinance To Allow Some Nightclubs To Go Without Security

Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — A new entertainment ordinance could allow nightclubs to go without security.

After a year of discussion, the new ordinance would allow clubs that operate safely for nine months to go without security.

The current ordinance requires an off-duty Raleigh police officer to provide security at most nightclubs.

Club owners, however, say the security is too expensive.

Under the new ordinance, clubs with a history of problems must still hire a law officer.

The ordinance takes effect Aug. 1.
