State, AC casinos to share critical emergency info

    Atlantic City’s 11 casinos will share critical information during emergencies with State Police and Homeland Security officials under a new arrangement, the AP reports. 

    The state attorney general’s office says the Mutualink system will let authorities and the casino quickly and securely share voice, video and text files.

    The system is designed to link the casinos with dispatchers, police, fire and EMS and other public safety agencies.

    One particular feature of the system will allow law enforcement to tap into the closed-circuit television systems of each casino.
