After the deadly shooting rampage at Virginia Tech, jitters are being felt at colleges and universities in our area.
Wallace Community College is taking a look at what they can do to protect its students.
Campus Dean Mark Shope says they have extensive emergency plans in case of an emergency.
Shope says about 10-years ago there was an issue at the school with two students where a gun was involved.
No one was injured in that incident.
A few years ago, Shope says there was a rash of bomb threats, which closed the campus.
In that situation, Wallace worked with the Dothan Police Department and FBI to ultimately arrest a suspect without incident.
Wallace has a security camera system and armed security guards on campus 24-hours a day.
