PLYMOUTH, WI (WTAQ) - A private college in Sheboygan County will have their security guards carry guns starting next month.
Lakeland College of Plymouth has been considering the move for about a year, in response to gun violence at other schools.
Officers will wear .45-caliber Glocks as part of their uniforms.
Officials said the need was highlighted during an incident in May, in which a visitor to an athletic facility got into an argument with a student and later came back with a gun. The episode ended with no one getting hurt.
Lakeland security chief Nate Dehne said the incident was the only gun-related scene he could remember in his 10 years on the campus.
However, he said it underscored the reality that no school is totally without risk.
