Courthouse Security

The Courthouse Security topic covers the latest in tactics and technology used to keep courtrooms safe during legal proceedings. Some stories involve bailiffs, marshals, and deputies, but others may focus on trial media coverage. Whether the seats in the courthouse are occupied by gang members or a victim’s family members, the courtroom is a tinderbox ready to be set alight when the judge or jury reaches a verdict.
