The Houston County Schools may phase out armed guards hired to provide security in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school shootings last December.

Houston County School Superintendent Tim Pitchford said Tuesday that new security measures put in place at the schools will reduce the need for the armed guards the school system has hired. In the last few months, the school system has installed automated locks allowing principals to lock down schools, more security cameras and implemented other security measures to make schools safer.
