Kentucky Schools Invest in Security FilmJune 21st, 2023 by Chris Collier
Henderson County Schools and community partners in Kentucky have invested in 3M Safety and Security Window Films for all Henderson County School buildings. The total cost of the project is approximately $250,000.
In May, the board of education also approved the purchase of OpenGate Weapons Detection Systems for Henderson County High School, North Middle School, South Middle School and Central Academy.
“The ‘free-flowing’ screening device allows people to walk through quickly without taking off backpacks, yet it can still instantly detect metals and weapons. This system will be in place when classes begin in August,” the release adds.
Superintendent of Henderson County Schools Bob Lawson says, “We are immensely grateful to the community for their dedication and commitment to school safety. Through their generous contributions and collective efforts, we will be able to implement enhancements to our school safety protocols. We believe that school safety is a collaborative effort, and we are thankful for our board members, local law enforcement, and community partners working hand-in-hand with us to ensure the safety of our students and staff remains our top priority.”
