CINCINNATI (AP) - Officials in Cincinnati say they’re stepping up security measures at City Hall following threats against the city’s mayor.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1JPvBKJ ) two threats last week against Mayor John Cranley and an ongoing security assessment have highlighted the need for security improvements.

The newspaper reports City Hall is no longer equipped with the metal detectors it once had, and visitors have been able to go to any office simply by signing in.

While former Mayor Mark Mallory had a police-provided body guard during his tenure, Cranley has rejected 24/7 police protection.

Now officials say they will place a second security guard at the building’s entrance, visitors will be escorted to meetings or offices and employees will be required to show identification.
