Ener-Tel Services is the Court Security Specialist of Texas with over 30 years of experience in the security industry and courts statewide.
With a new partnership with Gilbert Consulting Services, founded by Allen Gilbert of San Angelo, you can now have a combined 93 years of Court Security experience; making sure your court is as secure as it can be.
With court security being at a heightened level of awareness, it is more important than ever to have security cameras, access controlled doors, panic, buttons, and security policies and procedures. With recent numbers being put out by the Office of Court Administration, as many as two-thirds of all Municipal Courts in Texas do not have Court Security Policy and Procedures.
How can Ener-Tel help you avoid being in that two-thirds? Review the brief court security checklist below.
Does your court have a court security committee, access control system, video surveillance system, and court security policies and procedures? If you answered no to any of these questions, contact us for a security assessment.
Please see review the excerpt below from the 2017 85th Legislative Update manual from the Texas Municipal Courts Education Center:
“SB-42 Subject: Security of Courts and Judges in the State Effective: September 1, 2017
The assassination attempt against Travis County District Judge Julie Kocurek in the fall of 2015 underscored the urgent need to evaluate the state’s court security policies. Shortly after this incident, the Office of Court Administration sent a court security survey to judges in the state. This survey revealed that nearly two-thirds of judges do not know of, or do not have, a court security plan; more than 30 percent of judges were aware of a security incident in the year prior to completing the survey; nearly two-thirds of judges reported that no court security training has been provided in their courthouse; and nearly two-thirds of judges are unaware of existing statutory security incident reporting requirements. Accordingly, the Texas Judicial Council established a Court Security Committee. This committee found serious deficiencies in the state’s security posture, including a lack of court security best practices, training, and funding. SB-42, named the Judge Julie Kocurek Judicial and Courthouse Security Act of 2017, implements recommendations from the Court Security Committee, including creating the position of Director of Security and Emergency Preparedness at the Office of Court Administration, establishing local court security committees, requiring court security training of judges and court personnel, adding a $5 filing fee in civil cases (and directing the comptroller to credit such fees received to the Judicial and Court Personnel Training Fund), and facilitating removal of judges’ personal information from public documents. These changes would improve court safety for judges, employees, and citizens of Texas.”
