Barracuda Intruder Defense System
The Barracuda Intruder Defense System, pictured at left, was invented by military veteran Troy Lowe. The devices are being purchased for every door in the Taylor County School District, at a cost of about $37,000, which is $125 per device.

As ideas continue to be discussed about what should be done to strengthen local schools, Taylor County Schools Superintendent Roger Cook has decided to involve the local community in taking a step to strengthen security in each of the district’s four schools.

Cook attended a school safety seminar in Louisville last week, and has decided to purchase expandable doorstops to be placed on each door of an occupied room at each of the schools.
