CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Visitors to Southeast Tennessee courthouses should see more security features after $160,000 in state grants was awarded for upgrades in eight of 10 counties, officials said.
Stephanie Radzyminski is a deputy sessions court clerk who works the front window beside the Bradley County Judicial Complex's security station.
"I'm very happy with the security we have here now," Ms. Radzyminski said. "But sitting right here up front, I always worry just because of the nature of what I do."
