Cumberland County Commissioners Propose Courthouse Security Improvements

Posted June 8, 2005 10:20 a.m. EDT

— The Cumberland County courthouse could get a major security upgrade.

A committee of county commissioners proposed spending nearly $1.5 million on the improvements.

Suggestions include vehicle barriers 85 feet from the building, stronger windows and securing a loading dock.

The commissioners plan to discuss the security upgrade further before a final vote.

The move is in response to a March shooting rampage at an Atlanta courthouse.
