AOC Extends Deadline for Courthouse Security Grant Applications

The Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) has extended its deadline for court security grant applications to Nov. 17. Grant applications received on or before the original due date of Oct. 16 will move forward in the review and decision process. The AOC launched a one-time court security grant program after receiving $2 million in one-time funding from the Tennessee General Assembly and Gov. Bill Haslam to improve court security across the state. Preference will be given to counties with courtrooms that do not currently meet the present minimum courtroom security standards, as well as counties that have experienced a courtroom security breach during the 12-month period of July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. For more information, contact Mitch Turner.
