“Most, if not all, government buildings as well as our school buildings have all implemented a similar level of building access security,” said Southampton Town Code Compliance and Emergency Management Administrator Steven Troyd. “The safety of the public and our employees is paramount.”
Security checkpoint procedures will be operational throughout the day beginning at 8 a.m. when Town Hall is open to the public.
