GLENDALE, Calif.—Security cameras and panic buttons are coming to Glendale schools.

A January bomb threat at a Glendale school and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut are among the reasons for the Glendale Unified School District decision to bolster security.

The Los Angeles Times ( http://lat.ms/Xw6K86) says school officials plan to install security cameras at all 30 campuses as well as reception area panic buttons that call 911 with a single push.

Officials also want to create a single entry point at elementary schools.
