Security at the Houston County Courthouse is back in the hands of Sheriff Lamar Glover.
Employees with a private security firm had been manning the metal detector at the courthouse entrance, but when the company's one-year contract expired last month, it was not renewed.
Sheriff Glover says deputies have again been assigned to screen people entering the courthouse because they can do a better job in case of an emergency.
Two additional deputies have been hired to man the courthouse metal detector.
