Better security at the Benton County Courthouse

BENTON COUNTY, Wash. -- The Benton County Justice Center is moving forward with a major security upgrade.

A year ago, we told you several courtrooms didn't have security cameras.

Since our story, KEPR learned half-a-dozen cameras have been installed.

The focus is now on adding cameras to the parking lot -- but money issues still have to be worked out.

Just last week, indoor cameras caught a man defacating in the hallway.

A total of 30 new cameras will eventually be installed.
