Metal detectors not feasible for new high school
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. - After a McCracken County school board member called for a feasibility study to take a closer look at the use of metal detectors at the new high school, the committee found that walk-though metal detectors aren't the best option.
"It was pretty plain to see due to the time constraints, if you will, it just wasn't feasible," he said. He added that among the committee members, several security officers from the McCracken County courthouse came to the same conclusion.
Once Belt found out about that, the locked door systems, and the hand-held metal detector wands, he said he feels like the school is one of the safest places he could send his son and he hopes the other parents feel the same way.
