Del. Court Officials Eye Security After Shooting

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- Court officials in Delaware are calling on lawmakers to approve millions of dollars to improve security at the state's courthouses.

Chief Justice Myron Steele submitted a funding request for the upcoming fiscal year on Tuesday aimed at improving court security in the wake of a Feb. 11 shooting at the New Castle County Courthouse that left the gunman and two women dead.

Court officials refused to release details of their recommendations because of security concerns, but Steele says additional security staffing is the top priority. He also said security experts are not recommending that the security screening stations at the New Castle County Courthouse be moved closer to the building entrance, as some others have suggested.

Steele says the security recommendations come with a rough cost estimate of $3.5 million.
