Wyoming Medical Center Upgrades Security After Shooting
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Medical Center is moving forward with a slate of security upgrades after a man opened fire inside the facility earlier this year.
The Casper Star-Tribune reported Thursday that the state's largest hospital already has started securing all doors on its campus nightly, requiring personnel to use badges to enter.
Hospital chief administrative officer Mike Staley says the facility will be bringing in its own security team instead of contracting an outside company. It plans to increase the number of officers to 21.
The hospital also plans to upgrade and increase surveillance cameras and improve its radio capabilities.
Mitchell Taylor was convicted last month of aggravated assault and destroying property for shooting a handgun inside the hospital in March.
