Getting into the Fulton County Courthouse may be a little more restrictive than it once was but it’s in the interest of public safety.
County Commissioner Steve Metzger says new security measures are in effect.
The move comes with the wrap-up of the recent concrete and limestone project around the courthouse.
It also comes as Fulton County prepares to host the Alyssa Shepherd trial next month.
Security measures recently also include a weapons ban at the courthouse. Guns, knives, etc. will be confiscated if they are found on anyone trying to make courthouse entry.
