Metal detectors in place at Grenada County schools

By The Associated Press

GRENADA — Walk-through metal detectors have been installed at schools in the Grenada County School District.

Superintendent David Daigneault says the detectors will start being used once teachers and other personnel get training. He says the school board also must develop policies for their use.

Daigneault says the school system also will be installing door buzzers, buying a new police car and hiring new security personnel.

Daigneault says school personnel also will have secondary wand detectors.
