At Gold Hills Police headquarters, Patty Pauley feels more comfortable at work.
"I feel much safer," she said.
Just a few weeks ago, the Springs Police Department began installing bullet-resistant glass around the front desk.
"We've had people bring in rifles and handguns for disposal," said Sgt. Jerry Steckler.
"I've had a person come in with a duffle bag, sat it in the lobby. We thought it was a bomb and everybody had to evacuate," said Pauly.
So far, the bullet-resistant glass has been installed at the Gold Hills subdivision and the Police Operations Center.
Steckler said the glass will also be installed at the other substations.
