Upgrades in the court house security in Holmes County are forthcoming with the addition of two full time deputies to man the front door and operate a walk through magnetometer.  After several months of discussion between area Judges, Holmes County Commissioners and Holmes County Sheriff Tim Brown, it was determined that additional security was needed.  In response to this recent upgrade, Judges feel that this addition to the court house security is needed because people sometimes become emotionally charged in court and incidents have occurred across the country in which court personnel are put in danger.  In response to this upgrade in security, Sheriff Tim Brown said “people should feel safe when they come into the court house”.  Sheriff Brown also apologizes for any inconvenience that these additional security measures may cause to the public. These changes will take effect during the first week of January.
