New security measures were installed Friday at Tenth Street Place, which houses city of Modesto and Stanislaus County offices. Security guards began using wands to screen people as they entered the building.
The wands, and more changes coming to the entrances, were recommendations from Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Lt. Dennis Cordova, who serves as the county’s security officer. Cordova also suggested installing turnstiles for city and county employees at the 10th and 11th street entrances. The employees would activate a turnstile with their employee badges.
Officials said the turnstiles should be installed over the summer.
