First Day of New Security Measures at Nueces County Courthouse

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Monday was the first day of some new, stepped-up security procedures at the Nueces County Courthouse.

Folks now have to remove coats and belts before going through security, and not everyone was happy with the new measures.

"I don't like it at all," said one visitor. "It's a belt buckle. They have wands. Use them."

For the most part, the lines seemed to move smoothly on Monday, and there were no major problems. Some people said they were comfortable with the new rules.

"You just have to do what you have to do," courthouse visitor Lon Coleman said. "I mean, if they think that's something you need to do, I'm fine with it. Doesn't hurt anything."

Security officials say the stepped up security measures aren't the result of any warnings or impending threats, but a way of bringing courthouse security up to date. They say it could take you a few more minutes to get through the lines during peak hours.
