Trigg County to dedicate new justice center Oct. 28
FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The public is invited to a dedication ceremony for the Trigg County Justice Center on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 11 a.m. CDT at 41 Main St. in Cadiz.
“Since the early days of the commonwealth, Kentucky courthouses have held a special place as the center of our communities,” Chief Justice of Kentucky John D. Minton Jr. said. “The new Trigg County Justice Center will provide an efficient facility where citizens can carry out court business and seek access to justice. I appreciate the county leaders and state legislators who joined the Judicial Branch in making this project a reality.”
The justice center consists of approximately 39,591 square feet and includes space for Circuit Court, District Court, the Office of Circuit Court Clerk and ancillary services.
The new court facility increases efficiency of services and public flow. It is equipped with the latest computer, video and networking technology. The design also provides the highest level of Kentucky court security through a single-point entry with magnetometers and security personnel. In addition, prisoners will be segregated from the public by separate entrances and corridors.
The Trigg County Justice Center was designed to meet the standards required by the Administrative Office of the Courts. CMW Inc. of Lexington designed the justice center, Codell Construction Co. of Winchester was the construction manager and Hilliard Lyons was the financial agent.
Chief Justice Minton and Trigg County Judge-Executive Stanley H. Humphries will be among the speakers at the dedication ceremony. State legislators, circuit and district judges, the Trigg County circuit court clerk, AOC staff, county magistrates and other local officials are also expected to attend. For more information, contact Judge-Executive Humphries 270-522-8459.
As the administrative and fiscal agent for the Kentucky Court of Justice, the AOC oversees the construction and maintenance of court facilities statewide. The AOC also supports the activities of 3,800 court system employees, including the elected justices, judges and circuit court clerks.
