city hall security

The level of security at Cincinnati city hall is once again being debated.  Some changes have already been put in place after a man drove his truck up to the front steps of the building last month and asked to meet with the mayor.  He was detained without incident and no one was hurt.  

Now some council members want a comprehensive review of security at the building.

A Cincinnati Council Member wants to reinstall metal detectors at the entrance to City Hall.  

Cecil Thomas said in a press release the current protocol of having people sign a register as they enter the building doesn't deter violence.  He said anyone could carry a weapon into the building.
Thomas points out federal and county public facilities use metal detectors.
