Fundamentals of Court Security

June 25 @ 8:00 amJune 26 @ 5:00 pm

American courthouses come in a myriad of designs, from centuries-old stone fortresses to modern-day, multi-floor monolithic towers, from the one-room council chambers to the abstract designs of the creative architect. No matter what the shape, size, or condition, the courthouse serves only one purpose, the assurance that justice and the judicial process is preserved and protected. (John E. Zaruba)

 

This 16-hour course is designed to provide participants with a basic understanding of the fundamentals associated with providing a safe and secure environment for conducting court business, as well as seeing to the safety of all who pass through the courthouse doors.
