New regulations step-up security measures at Bridgeport schools
New regulations are bringing stepped-up security to the Bridgeport School District.
Starting Monday, students at Bridgeport's three high schools will be greeted with metal detectors and other security changes as part of a process passed by the district's board of education.
The schools will go into lockdown mode Monday morning so students can only enter through certain entrances. Hand-held metal detectors will be used to catch any guns, knives or other weapons before they are taken into the school.Other new security measures include limited entrances as well as name tags students must wear during the day.
