RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) — Officials at Eastern Kentucky University say they will look for ways to enhance security at the school more than a week after a death threat was found in a campus restroom.

WYMT-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1OyuW5D ) Executive Director of Public Safety and Risk Management Bryan Makinen says the school is working on a request to engage a third-party vendor to help them assess the school’s infrastructure and give security recommendations.

Makinen says addition additional security cameras would be welcomed. He also says there were cameras installed at the building where the threat was written, but they weren’t able to see who was in the area.

The school cancelled classes on Oct. 7. Students returned to class Wednesday. The school is offering a $10,000 reward for information about the threat.
