MOORE COUNTY, N.C. — Security various buildings in a county can incorporate a number of different security systems based on the unique challenges each building faces.

Moore County Manager Wayne Vest said part of the challenge is the number of buildings in the county, most notably the Old Courthouse.

“We need to determine the threat level for each and match that to an appropriate security level,” Vest said. “We want to make sure we cover all possible situations.”

A second proposal comes from SimplexGrinnell, which called for card readers on doors for employee access, as well as security cameras and monitoring systems to grant employees access to restricted areas.
