Traverse City Courthouse Getting Brand New X-Ray Machine
The Traverse City courthouse is getting an upgrade.
The goal is to make sure the building is as safe as possible.
Right now the courthouse only has a metal detector.
They plan to add a new x-ray machine to the corridor thanks in part to a WRAP grant.
An x-ray machine was installed last year in the Robert P. Griffin Hall of Justice.
“It’s a little more advanced screening than just a metal detector and a visual observation of people coming into the court,” said County Administrator Nate Alger.
Alger says they’ve noticed the benefits and it’s a less-invasive form of security.
The court says it does not yet have a date for when the x-ray machine will be installed.
