Wyoming lawmakers may set aside money for courthouse security

Posted:

Wyoming lawmakers want to beef up security in county courthouses.

The Senate passed a bill Monday that would create a $10 million dollar fund that would use matching grants to help pay for security improvements.

Sheridan County commissioners say the bill is needed for many other counties, but they've stayed ahead of the curve.

After local judges voiced concerns, the county spent hundreds of thousands of dollars over the last several years on measures including security cameras and protective barriers.

"So they've hit us up over the years, and we've tried to address them. We've spent some county money as well as some homeland security money," said Sheridan County commissioner Terry Cram.

The bill now moves on to the State House for approval.
