South Bend schools are implementing new safety measures after issues seen during a sports event last year.

They’re calling it a “threat detection system,” which can detect weapons like handguns and tactical knives at the entrance to the school.

The district purchased 10 of the systems, which are portable and can be transported to other schools for large events.

These devices are just another safety measure added following issues seen in the district last year, including a large fight at a basketball game that ended the competition early.

According to WSBT, district leaders say these devices could eventually be put in place for regular school days and can be used to detect other items, including vapes.
