CAMP SHELBY, MS (WDAM) -

All entrances to Camp Shelby are once again staffed by guards.

National Guard personnel are handling security at all three of Camp Shelby's gates.

For several weeks, they were unmanned because of budget cuts which resulted in civilian gate guards being laid off or re-assigned to other positions.

Camp Shelby officials said military police had been maintaning some limited security around the post during that time.
