Fla. district to run checks on visitors to its school buildings

The St. Petersburg Times reports that the Hernando County School Board will purchase 23 web-based V.Soft data readers to place at the entrances to its schools. School visitors will be required to scan a driver’s license or photo ID upon entering the building. The software will then check a national database to see if any of these visitors are known sex offenders. The system can also be set up to identify people with restraining orders against them or parents forbidden by the courts from having contact with their children.
