Garrett Metal Detectors Extends Offer To Santa Fe High School

GARLAND, Texas, -- Texas-based Garrett Metal Detectors, co-founded by 84-year old, fourth generation educator, Eleanor Smith Garrett, is pleased to announce that in response to the terrible tragedy at Santa Fe High School, if the board decides to add metal detectors as a part of their security program, Garrett Metal Detectors will donate a comprehensive metal detection program that includes security assessment, metal detectors, installation and training to Santa Fe High School in conjunction  with Lt. Governor Patrick who is making a gift of up to 10 metal detectors to the school.  

In another major announcement, Lt. Governor Patrick revealed that as part of his school safety legislative agenda for the upcoming 2019 Texas Legislative Session, the Texas Senate will create a matching fund program to assist any public school in implementing a metal detection program.  This will be a purely voluntary decision by the school district. Schools that buy metal detectors before session will be reimbursed according to the matching program once implemented during session.

Garrett Metal Detectors co-founder, Eleanor Smith Garrett, praised Lt. Governor Patrick's gift announcement.  "Children and their education are my passions, so it is an honor to contribute our metal detection expertise into a comprehensive security plan for those impacted by the tragedy at Santa Fe," she said.  "I commend Lt. Governor Patrick as his decisive leadership will further the safety of our children by creating the first school safety program of its kind in the country to protect all Texas schools."
