LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - A district judge in Albany County says security remains an issue at the county courthouse in Laramie.

Judge Jeffrey Donnell says basic security standards developed by the Wyoming Court Security Commission have not been adopted in Albany County.

The security standards include having proper equipment, security staffing and training.

Albany County Commission Chairman Tim Sullivan acknowledges courtroom security is a problem.

Sullivan tells the Laramie Boomerang (https://bit.ly/1ohOpcO ) that the county can’t afford the cost of making extensive improvements to the courthouse.

But he did note that closed-circuit security cameras and monitors have been installed recently.

Donnell says the county does have the money to do more. He says the county commission chooses to spend it on other things.
