LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- The University of Kentucky is implementing new security measures over the next several months in an effort to keep students and workers safer.
Students received an email from the school this month outlining details of the plan and new policies that will go into effect.
UK Police Chief Joe Monroe told WKYT-TV that the school is spending nearly $5 million on the project. He says it includes adding several cameras around the Lexington campus and issuing new ID badges to students and employees.
UK freshman Patrick Muldoon says he thinks the measures are a step in the right direction.
