Sacramento City Schools Look at Metal Detectors


Sacramento City Unified School District board members are taking a look at adding security measures including metal detectors at their high schools and middle schools.

The idea comes a week after officers stopped an alleged shooting plot at McClatchy High School. The districtís staff had been studying the cost of the high tech equipment before the scare.

The districtís assistant superintendent, Phillip Moore, researched several programs including metal detection school programs in New York City. Moore found that the program costs $60,000 per year, per school for equipment and security personnel. For the district, screening students appears to be the biggest challenge.

"To try and pull in 2,000 kids during a school day, to have them go through a metal detector. That takes about an hour and a half so they have to stagger their start," said Moore.

Well, if they are just looking at these now, then they have done much better than some of the schools around the country. I know that many areas have had them for many years, I am not sure that people feel safer with them. I know of students who have went to schools with them and were very afraid, because people will find ways to sneak things in.

For parents it does not ease the pain of sending students to public schools.
