Supervisors, sheriff still debating the best way to secure Woodbury County courthouse

There's more division between the Woodbury County Sheriff's office and the board of supervisors over courthouse security. Sheriff Dave Drew has presented a plan that at $188,000 is below the budgeted $250,000. It calls for a deputy sergeant to oversee reserve deputies stationed at the courthouse entrance. It does not call for security cameras. Supervisor Jackie Smith submitted a proposal for two people stationed at the entrance, three on days when juries are present. There would also be security cameras. Supervisors hope to have an agreement by next week.
