SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A recently approved public safety ordinance in Old Town Scottsdale requires businesses to meet new safety standards.

The rule has been passed by the city council, but businesses will have about 90 days to meet the new ordinance.

Under the public safety ordinance, businesses must file extensive safety plans with the city, meet minimum security standards and undergo security staff training.

The ordinance comes after the deadly stabbing of Tyrice Thompson, a former ASU football player killed while working as a bouncer at Martini Ranch, in January.

The new rules are enforced by the Scottsdale Police Department. The city of Scottsdale has authority to shut down any businesses found to be in repeated violation of the rules.
