Portage County security upgrade

by Nate Barrett

WAUSAU (WAOW) - The courthouse in Stevens Point is upping its security.

Starting today the break in phase of the Portage County Courthouse Security plan goes into effect.

Next week court bailiffs will begin implementing the new screening process. If you are on the second floor when court is in session be prepared to walk through a metal detector.

The Chief Deputy with the Portage County Sheriff's office says the inconvenience will be minor... but realize that everything you bring will be screened.

The new security plan is aimed at keeping everyone safe.
