Dinwiddie improves security at courthouse

DINWIDDIE, Va. (AP) -- Dinwiddie County is updating its courthouse's security systems.

The systems were installed in 1998. Sheriff D.T. Adams tells The Progress-Index ( ) that the equipment still worked to an extent but it was outdated.

Adams says top priority security needs have been completed. A contractor will complete other needs over the next couple of years.

County officials wouldn't provide details on the upgrades in order to protect the building's security.

County Administrator W. Kevin Massengill tells the newspaper that the changes involve monitoring services and security equipment.

The Board of Supervisors has spent more than $441,000 on the upgrades since April 2013.
