Security upgrades coming for courthouse

by Lisa Brown

 BRIDGEWATER - The Bridgewater justice centre is one of 10 courthouses around the province which will share $2 million worth of new security measures.

 Justice Minister Ross Landry announced the funding last week.

 "Safety and security of people is of paramount importance in our courtrooms," the minister said. "This significant investment will make courtrooms and courthouses across the province safer."

 The money will be spent in 2012-13 on new or replacement closed-circuit cameras, access controls, alarms and other protective measures.

 In Bridgewater, officials say improvements will include an upgraded duress alarm system in courtrooms, which will allow faster response time in the event of a situation.

 Bridgewater will also get additional closed-circuit cameras.

 The Bridgewater justice centre opened on High Street in 2009 at a cost of just under $17 million.
