Lawrence Crafts Security Plan to Comply with Weapons Law

KSAL StaffMay 27, 2016

The city of Lawrence is creating a security plan to comply with a state law allowing people to carry concealed guns.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the city attorney’s office has proposed funds in the 2017 budget to install personnel and equipment security at entrances to public buildings in anticipation of the Personal and Family Protection Act’s expiration in 2017.

The act, passed in 2013, allowed Lawrence and other cities to ban concealed weapons for four years before complying with a state law that says concealed firearms are allowed in public buildings unless the structures are equipped with security measures.

The security measures are being considered at City Hall, the municipal court, the public library and the police department’s investigations and training center.
