Commissioner Purvis appointed to courthouse grant advisory panel

MANKATO — Blue Earth County Commissioner Will Purvis has been  appointed to represent the Association of Minnesota Counties on an advisory panel for courthouse security grant funding.
The Safe and Secure Courthouse Grant Advisory Panel will oversee the grant application and award process after the Legislature established a $1 million grant program under the auspices of the chief justice of the state Supreme Court.

Purvis had been meeting on the courthouse security work group for about a year. The group originally asked the Legislature for $20 million for courthouse security throughout the state.

The funding will require a 50 percent local match. Blue Earth County has not yet decided about applying.

The county's justice center, which opened in 2009, is new compared to many courthouses and has several security measures in place, including armed bailiffs, video surveillance and secure methods for prisoner transport.

"We certainly have a pretty good courthouse security system," Purvis said.
