Winnebago County Courthouse Upgrades Security Equipment

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Security is getting tighter at the Winnebago County Justice Center and Public Safety Building. New equipment was recently installed that detects a lot more than it used to.

Winnebago County paid about $20,000 for the upgraded machines, which include color images of what's in your bag. If you're carrying something metal the computer will circle the image for security guards. This is the county's first time buying new security equipment since 1998.
