Judicial/Justice Center Has Security Problems

Representatives of both the Johnson County Sheriff's Office and Buffalo Police Department discussed with the county commissioners a number of security issues that have cropped up at the new judicial center and justice center buildings, and how they might get the problems resolved.

Johnson County Sheriff Steve Kozisek said the main issue is that the company that installed some electronic door locks and alarms never got them functional before the buildings were turned over to the county.

Police Chief Jason Carder also explained that video and audio recording equipment in the facility has never functioned properly either.

Deputy Leigh Braley explained that the systems have never worked like they were supposed to from the first day the county took possession of the building. He and others have made numerous calls to the contractor to try to resolve the issues and still have not had them fixed. The company claims they installed software that was not their own as recommended by the engineers on the project.

Deputy County Attorney Barry Crago asked what, specifically, the commissioners wanted him to do.

The letters will be drafted and sent to see if the problems will be resolved before any further action will be taken.
