Security beef-up for courts
WHEN IT COMES TO security at magistrates’ courts across the country, changes are coming.
Calling the recent incident in which a man attempted to enter the precincts of the District ‘A’ court with a firearm “a wake-up call”, Supreme Court registrar Barbara Cooke-Alleyne is promising changes in security measures at courts in the very near future.
Cooke-Alleyne said a short-term and then a long-term solution to security improvements were being considered, and she intended to keep both the public and courts’ staff safe.
“What happened was a wake-up call for all of us. The first thing we did was to improve security at the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court as a matter of urgency, but it won’t stop there,” Cooke-Alleyne told the SUNDAY SUN.
