Judge School: Safety Requirement for Bucks Judges

In the wake of the recent killing of two DA’s in Texas and one of their wives, people who work in the legal system are reevaluating their safety. On Wednesday, a Sheriff in West Virginia was gunned down as he sat in his cruiser. Bucks County District Judge, William Benz says, Judge School is a requirement. “And the last time we were there, we saw a session on judges security, and what to do and what not to do. We are trained in that way to know what to do. If there is ever a hint of a threat, we have to report it, we are supposed to report it.” Judge Benz also says, inside the courtroom, he has access to a panic button in response to a threat. Judge Benz was a guest Wednesday on the WNPV program Legally Speaking.
