Albany -- New security cameras are installed in the Dougherty County Courthouse. Ten new cameras now monitor movements inside the building.  

They are around all the doors and stairways in the front entrance and side halls of the courthouse. Each courtroom has a camera as well.

 The cameras are monitored by the Sheriff's office around the clock. Captain Tim Hanington said "these cameras are not noticeable to the public. We don't want to cause attention about these things. They are just an extra level of protection while they are in the courtroom, to enhance the panic button system we already have in there. "

The security camera system cost 14-thousand dollars. Next security cameras will be installed in the government center and the Tax Office.
