Hancock County Juvenile And Probate Court Gets Metal Detectors

The Hancock County Juvenile and Probate Court got a security upgrade this week. You’ll now have to go through metal detectors to enter the building. Sheriff Mike Heldman tells the Courier they had a security breach at the court on January 1, and as a result had to station two deputies at the door to the court.

Heldman says the metal detectors are old equipment from the Hancock County Courthouse. A potential security overhaul could mean newer detectors for the facility.
