Upgrading Port Security

It has been nearly four years since 9/11, and North Carolina's State Ports are finally getting millions to tighten security. Blame red tape, says the port’s security man, Doug Campen. The Morehead City and Wilmington ports were some of the first in America to submit upgraded security plans after the war on terror began. But federal and state bureaucracy has finally cleared the decks at the docks, and new security fences, sensors, cameras and I.D. badges are on the way. The ports have topped $8 million in federal grants, and hope to start construction on the new security systems later this month.
