Officials at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport are exploring ways to improve their own security measures following the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England that left at least 22 people, including children, dead and 59 others injured.
Webster Bank Arena has hosted some of the entertainment world's biggest acts over the years, including a Kiss concert last September.
The arena holds 10,000 people for concerts, and since opening in 2001, there have been no major security threats, authorities say.
Charlie Dowd, the arena's senior vice president of operations, says he and his staff are doing everything they can to make sure patrons are safe. He says the arena partners with Bridgeport police and also hires its own security to that end.
