Officials address Courthouse safety


“Tell me what you want and how secure you want it and we’ll go from there,” Mercer told the commissioners.

Precinct 2 Commissioner Louis Ragle suggested starting with just one guard whose mere presence would serve as a deterrent for possible criminal activity.

Mercer replied that such action would be “better than nothing but it’s not courthouse security.”

Nicklas asked Mercer to compile policies and procedures in effect at courthouses in surrounding counties and set a workshop for commissioners to discuss the issue further later this week.
