Metal Detectors Needed At Beaufort County Schools After Threat Scare

Posted by on May 9, 2013

After being locked down for several hours, because a student brought a loaded gun and knives to the Bluffton High School, the Beaufort County Board of education members are currently undecided as to whether metal detectors would prevent further incidents. Parents and other board members are urging county schools to install metal detectors after a 17 year old brought 12 knives, a loaded handgun, lighter fluid and fireworks to campus. The issue of installing metal detectors is a large debate right now and the Connecticut shooting has prompted an examination of school safety across the nation. The article states about the devices, “The Sheriff’s Office used the devices to check students coming into Hilton Head High School and other southern Beaufort County schools after a series of bomb threats in 1999. The district purchased 30 the next year.” I feel like the added security would be great and especially since the rise of these violent incidents.

I can understand, in a way, why the subject would be debated, but with these devices, I know I would feel better going into school. It might not prevent all violent acts, but the added security would be a plus for everyone. As of right now, county schools have armed school resource officers on campus during the week. A program will be launched to send officers to district schools. Bill Bond, a school safety specialist argues, “When someone arrives at a school already shooting, a metal detector makes no difference and are no more effective than the people running them.” Clearly, there are more concerns and varying opinions on the subject, but at the same time, society realizes more that now is the time to think about this.
