The Entertainment Commission has an inspector who attends parties, raves and dance halls every weekend and can stick problem venues with fines starting at $100. This summer, the agency issued 17 citations and 34 violation notices. Club-related crime data provided weekly by the police help the commission track trends and identify repeat offenders.
That expanded tool kit came in handy in November 2010, when a man was fatally shot at the Gravity Room in the Marina. The commission suspended the club's permit for a week and ordered beefed-up security measures. Shortened hours, increased security, pat-downs for every club-goer, security cameras monitoring the inside and outside, and contracts for hiring promoters were among the changes made to its security plan. Shortly thereafter, the club shut down.
What do you mean people don't want to get a pat-down to go into a club with cameras everywhere???
