Atlanta Courthouse Murders - Security Continues to Tighten

Link Courthouse Security Tightened

(AP) The Fulton County Sheriff's Office Tuesday outlined some of the changes to improve courthouse security, adding that more changes would be coming soon. Plainclothes officers have been put in uniform and moved to courtrooms, and 40 uniformed deputies have been added to the courthouse. A system has been set up to identify high-risk inmates, who will be escorted by officers with special training in handling such inmates. Additional safety equipment, including additional stun belts have been ordered. The changes are in response to Friday's attacks allegedly by Brian Nichols. (***03/15/05 10:00pm***)
