New Courthouse Security Measures
Looks like the County Courthouse will be going the same way as the nation's airports: metal detector screening upon entering. What really gets me about this is what got this all started in the first place: An incident in another county jail of an inmate grabbing a gun from a deputy and killing some people.
I'm not saying security shouldn't be a concern at the courthouse and at least it looks like private security personnel will be performing the screening operation, for the most part. I just wonder how much improvement there might be among the firearm retention capabilities among law enforcement in the courthouse- the type of incident that caused this screening to come about to begin with?
I always end up with at least a slight headache the few times I've ended up going to the courthouse, for whatever reason. Looks like that's not likely to ever go away now and might even get worse.
