Bridgewater Justice Centre Receiving Security Upgrades

Justice Minister Ross Landry
Bridgewater's Justice Centre is getting security upgrades. The province announced the local Centre is one of 10 courthouses Nova Scotia-wide to receive funding to make the building safer. The Centre is getting new closed-circuit cameras and an upgraded alarm system. The communications advisor for the Department of Justice, Dan Harrison, says the upgrades will improve building security.
"We don't believe safety or security at the courthouse is compromised right now, we think our courts are very safe. But, we see areas that we think we can do better and improve."
The province is investing $2-million into the 10 courthouses, but Harrison couldn't confirm how much money Bridgewater would receive. The upgrades at the Justice Centre won't begin until roughly Spring 2012.
