The new security checkpoint at the front entrance of the Richland County Courthouse started operating Thursday. Retired sheriff’s deputies are checking visitors for weapons as their possessions are X- Rayed and they pass through a metal detector. It’s going smoothly as Richland becomes the last county in Ohio to have such security at its administration building. The checkpoint is intended to prevent any emotionally- charged situations from escalating into violence with the use of weapons. The start-up cost for construction, equipment, and staffing was $140,000. The operating cost will be $65,000 a year, with each county office contributing to the expense.
Well Mr. Heindel, from one who can appreciate your interview of the slain Lexington man I would love to be stand corrected on this report that retired Deputy’s will run this operation. I see the FIRED APA SUPERVISOR using the x-ray machine, since when did he retire from anything? How about his ex-boss Leitenberger who’s a part of this sham? Wasn’t he left go by the State as well? If you want to do something for Richland County, how about doing something about the executive branch that’s running amuck with deception to its people?
Look at my wall of shame, isn’t John wearing the same shirt in which WMFD last lobbied to get his job back? Maybe the people should know what the Governor Kasich said? – The last we heard from this guy he was writing the Governor, so what’s up? – Besides MORE deception!
Sure there’s reason for metal detectors, COUNTY CORRUPTION IS WHY!
