VA officials have installed locked gates on secondary entrances at the Knoxville campus in order to prevent unauthorized personnel from entering portions of the campus, that’s according to Staff Assistant to the Director, Dave Huffman.  Knoxville Police Chief Dan Losada says this is something his officers have known about for some time.  He says while it makes their regular drive through routes a little more difficult, the police department will continue to monitor the campus as they have in the past.  The main entrance on West Pleasant Street remains open and unlocked.
