Several security updates will soon make their way to the Butte County Courthouse, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The courthouse will soon have upgraded doors, panic buttons, and several surveillance cameras on its premises after a vote of approval from the Butte County Commission.
Las year, the South Dakota Legislature appropriated funds for security needs at county courthouses across the state. The appropriation provided fifty percent match funding for security improvement projects. Nearly $300,000 was allocated across 26 counties in the state for security updates at county courthouses. Butte County received $45,000 for updates to its courthouse.
