BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Area high schools are being mindful of recent events when it comes to security at their own football games.
A week ago, several people were injured after someone started shooting at a game in Mobile.
A week prior to that, a gun was found in the parking lot at a game in Tuscaloosa.
A Birmingham City Schools spokesperson says they are mindful of what’s happened around the state.
In addition to continuing to use metal detectors at entrances, they are implementing a clear bag policy starting this week. That policy has been in the works for a while.
