Hall Of Justice Gets Security Upgrades

By Beth Milligan | March 8, 2019

A new security feature was installed at the Robert P. Griffin Hall of Justice Thursday.

Visitors to the Washington Street building will now encounter a new X-ray machine at the security checkpoint. The 86th District Court, 13th Circuit Court Family Division, and the Grand Traverse Probate Court worked together to write a grant to purchase the machine.

"The new X-ray machine will accomplish several things," according to a court press release. "It will make our courthouse safer for staff and visitors, it will work to eliminate manual searches of bags that are brought into the building, and it will help to move visitors through the checkpoint in a shorter span of time."  

According to the release, security cameras have also been updated at the courthouse as part of the project.
