A state government authority in the US is set to implement tougher security procedures at its entrance points, a recent news report has found.
People who work or do business in the Ohio Statehouse must use their statehouse ID cards to pass through new security turnstiles starting July 5. The advisory board that oversees the Capitol grounds said Thursday the turnstiles will be installed at three of the building’s entrances. Those without the state-issued ID cards will continue to go through metal detectors, which were put in place last year.
Luke Stedke, spokesman for the board, said officials have chosen to be "proactive" in beefing up security in a time of increased threats from domestic and international terrorists and other armed assailants.
"It’s a balancing act," Stedke said. "Our challenge is to get people down here to be participatein the process of government and to be inspired."
The Statehouse has had about 200,000 visitors a year; that number could decrease as security is increased.
