Additional security in Brunswick County schools

Posted: Updated:

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office and Brunswick County School officials will have additional security at all elementary schools in the county.

This initiative is in response to the community feedback as a result of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT.

"In light of what occurred in Connecticut, it's obvious that we need to rethink our approach and possibly put additional measures into place, because it could happen at any school at any location," said Sheriff John Ingram Monday.

In order to make students, parents, and staff feel comfortable going to school, an officer from the Sheriff's Office will be at each elementary school until further notice.
