Schools address security following CT massacre

Posted: Updated:

After Friday's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary school districts across America are reevaluating their own safety protocols.

Scottsbluff Public Schools has been in the process of revamping its safety measures for the past 18 months.

Cameras are now installed at all schools in the district, and a district wide handheld radio system is in place.

Additionally, all schools are "one entrance only", and all other doors are locked during the school day.

Superintendent Rick Myles says it's important to have procedures such as these in place. However, nothing will ever provide rationale or justification when tragedies like this occur.

"It's just a matter of what we can do to deter people as much as we can," says Myles, "And be reasonable in what we do so that we don't inadvertently and unintentionally create other dangers we didn't intend."

Superintendent Myles says looking for red-flags for potential at-risk students remains a strong priority as well.
