Policing will increase this spring at the Michigan Capitol, but officials say they have no plans to add metal detectors.  

 State police will bring more personnel to the Capitol area and will enhance its technology as well.     That includes making better use of video camera monitoring and introducing thermal imaging to spot intruders in parking lots and outside the Capitol after dark.
