Boone County wants to make some security upgrades at the courthouse

The county judge says the courthouse is historic and more than 100 years old. Because of that, it’s difficult to make any changes to the actual building

Recently the county received a state grant to get extra security cameras, and they are planning to add about ten around the outside walls.
