This committee makes recommendations to the council for improving court security, including personal security and emergency response planning.
Date Established: October 25, 2013
The 10-member advisory committee is currently composed of an appellate court justice and administrator, trial court judges and judicial administrators, and advisory staff from the Administrative Office of the Courts. It reports directly to the Judicial Council. Future members will be appointed by the Chief Justice for a three-year term. Existing membership terms were staggered so that one third of the committee will change each year, beginning in September 2015.
In April 2013, the Judicial Council approved a recommendation that included creation of a Court Security Advisory Committee with a formal charge, a rule of court, and appointments made through the annual nominations process. Proposed rule 10.61 to establish the committee was circulated for public comment and then submitted to the Judicial Council for consideration. The Judicial Council established the Court Security Advisory Committee effective October 25, 2013.
The committee makes recommendations to the council for improving court security, including personal security and emergency response planning.
