NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The metal detector installed last week at the Natchez Police Department should be operational this week.

Police Chief Danny White tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/1i6pJCK ) the department and Natchez Municipal Court will partner to install half walls on each side of the detector to keep visitors from walking around it.

The detector has been placed in the building housing the police department and municipal court so that anyone entering the building from the front lobby to go to the municipal courtroom, records or other offices will be scanned.

A municipal court bailiff will be stationed at the detector to monitor it while those going to court enter the building.

White says the detector will be unmanned when court is not in session.
