PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Supreme Court is launching an effort to adopt security standards for courthouses around the state.

An order signed by Chief Justice Scott Bales creates a committee to conduct a survey of court security arrangements and make recommendations to the Arizona Judicial Council on standards for courthouse security, including training of security officers.

The recommendations are due by next October.

Bales says in the order that the effort is intended to make sure courthouses are safe places for all who enter them.

The committee’s 13 members include representatives of municipal and county courts.

The National Center for State Courts will provide guidance on conducting the survey and developing standards.
