Enroute to X-ray machine

Inside, place purses, bags, metal objects
on the belt, just like at the airport.

On third floor, courtrooms tighter security
Spot searches are to be expected

Courtroom entrance, more security required
during high profile criminal trials

You know it had to happen sooner or later – tightening up security at the Lincoln County Courthouse. County courthouses and other critically important government buildings around the country and certainly around Oregon have been funneling everyone through only one entrance in the interest of security and safety for law enforcement, judges and high profile criminals, suspected criminals and witnesses.

And it’s finally happening at the Lincoln County Courthouse in Newport. In the very near future tighter security will finally arrive, with the front doors no longer being an entrance or exit. All entrance and exiting will be done on the south side of the building next to the county commissioners’ offices. Entry will require an airport security type procedure. Handbags, backpacks and other “baggage” will be placed on a moving belt and xrayed. All metallic objects, including money goes in the little plastic bins that are also sent through the xray machine. The good news is, you won’t have to take off your shoes.

Once through the check-point you’ll be free to walk to where you need to go in the building. But on occasion, like now, when there is a fairly high profile trial going on, where emotions are still pretty hot over criminal allegations, extra security will be placed outside the entrance to the specific courtroom trying the case. Again, you’ll walk through a metal detector.

The courthouse single entrance and exit procedure covers all county employees and the public. In the case of any emergency, the front doors will work as an exit.

All coming very soon to the Lincoln County Courthouse.
