Local police get boost to make schools safer.

HART – The Youth Advisory Council of the Community Foundation for Oceana County recently contributed $3,000 to make local schools safer.

The donation will go toward the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office proposal for “Knox Boxes,” which will be installed at all Oceana County school buildings.

The “Knox Boxes” give emergency personnel easier access to schools during an emergency. It is a small steel box affixed to the outside of school buildings that contains a master key for the school.

Local law enforcement agencies will have special, serialized, keys that can’t be copied to gain access the boxes. There will be two boxes per building for responding agencies.
