Upshur County Commission Applying For Courthouse Security Grant

BUCKHANNON -

The Upshur County Commission will submit a grant application for additional security at the county courthouse.

It's requesting more than $38,000 from the Division of Criminal Justice and Community Services to buy more surveillance equipment and enhance safety measures in the courthouse.

"There's a lot of sensitive issues and there are people who are meeting that are there for not the best reasons. So in order to make sure everybody is safe, and feels comfortable coming here we want to make sure we have the safest facilities possible," said Megan Pomeroy, project director.

The commission applied for a similar grant four years ago.
