13 Action News visited UNLV today to talk to the chief of police about security after the attack at Ohio State.

Chief Jose Elique says that the attack serves as a reminder to always be prepared.

UNLV brought in extra officers today, went through their emergency plans, and checked the emergency alert system. If there is an incident, more than 30,000 people will receive alerts via text and email.

Chief Elique told 13 Action News that many of the classrooms at UNLV have electric locks which teachers can activate inside of their classroom if there is an emergency.

Elique says that students should also be alert and if they see something, say something.
