ELKINS — The Randolph County Commission has been awarded a grant in the amount of $35,196.00 from the West Virginia Court Security Fund.

According to Jim Bibey, chief security officer, some of the funds have been used to purchase a walk-through multi-zone metal detector with two digital handheld metal detectors for the Family Law Courtroom, and the remaining funds will be used to purchase a duress alarm system for the courthouse and all of its annexes.

The grant, which required no match, was submitted in April on behalf of the Court Security Department by the Randolph County Commission and prepared by Peggy Ross.
