The Vinton County Courthouse will begin security changes July 1.

One major change is all entrances will be locked other than the front door facing Main Street.

The sheriff's office announced today the Main Street entrance visitors will be greeted by two armed constables and will walk through a metal detector while placing their personal items through an x-ray machine.

Sheriff Shawn Justice says the measures are being put into place to protect those inside the courthouse.
