There will be no security at the front doors of the Bowie County courthouse for the foreseeable future

The commissioners court voted down funding for two front-door security officers. Recent budget cuts eliminated those duties.

The court could have used a restricted courthouse security fund to pay for guards for two months.

The commissioners have to decide by the end of September if they want front-door guards for the next fiscal year.
