Security Measures at City Hall Should Be Cost-Effective

Last month's shooting at a city council meeting in Missouri has apparently spooked some on the Pensacola City Council. On Tuesday night, they voted to let the city look into putting metal detectors at the entrance of City Hall, and manning them with security guards.

As I said yesterday, I think it is a good idea to take security measures at City Hall, but it should be done in a way that will be cost-effective. Councilman P.C. Wu put it perfectly when he commented on security at city hall in today’s PNJ. He said, “We have to balance safety versus cost.”

Let’s secure City Hall, but we shouldn't get out of control.
