The Benton Harbor schools are looking to add new security features to keep their students safer.

The Benton Harbor school board has decided to bring back metal detectors, and enhance some other security areas as well. The detectors, which they say were removed because they were malfunctioning, could be back in place in early as next week.

Benton Harbor High School, the Dream Academy, and the Arts and Communication Academy will each get two standing metal detectors, as well as wands to scan people who enter the building.

Other security measure decisions will be based on recommendations from a study done on the schools.

A resolution on gun safety has been tabled for a future meeting of the board.
