John Coté of the San Francisco Chronicle reports:

San Francisco police are recommending that entertainment venues permitted by the city be required to have security cameras, metal detectors and ID scanners that electronically store a patron’s driver’s license information for at least 15 days as a means to counter recent violence outside nightspots, city documents show.

ID data would be turned over to law enforcement at their request, as would camera images, according to a draft of the police recommendations.


The recommendations include requiring all security staff to be registered with the state Department of Consumer Affairs and requiring that venue owners create a security plan that meets the police chief’s approval.
