Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott warned Coffee County Commission last week that the security at the county’s justice center in Manchester is “not even close to the minimum statutory requirements for courthouse security.” The Manchester Times reports that Northcott shared concerns about the lack of required training of present courthouse officers. He said that all courtroom officers without proper training commit a Class E felony every time they enter the courthouse with a weapon.
