Grady courthouse boosts security

Cairo- Starting Monday, the Grady County Courthouse will be using a personal metal detector at its entrances. Deputies say they will be checking people for items such as guns, knives, or other contraband.

     Also, all visitors and employees will have to use the main front doors on the west side of the courthouse. Law enforcement will use the south doors. Officials say Superior Court Judges asked for the increased security because of the shootings that happened last Friday in Atlanta.
