New Comanche County Courthouse security measures begin Friday

The Comanche County Courthouse has implemented their new security systems starting Friday.

Now, visitors will only be able to enter the courthouse through the west side entrance and will now go through a metal detector. Their belongings will also be sent through an x-ray machine.

The system has been in the works for months and Commissioner Johnny Owens, who is the commissioner that oversees the courthouse, said the security upgrades were overdue.

“You have murder trials, child custody cases, it all happens up here and thank the good Lord nothing has happened,” Owens said.

The courthouse has also upgraded their security with a new camera system and an upgraded fire alarm system.

Commission Owens wanted to remind people coming to the courthouse that they are not allowed to bring guns, knives or anything which could be consider a weapon inside the building.
