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.
