Court Security Training

NSA has long provided education for those responsible for securing the courts and protecting the judiciary, those in the courts who serve the public, and the public who come to the courts to be served.

To continue that tradition, NSA provides a two-day Court Security Training throughout the country.  The foundation of this training is the NSA's Best Practices for Effective Court Security.  These practices address:

  • Threat Assessment
  • Courtroom Security
  • Screening Operations
  • Facility Security
  • Prisoner Supervision
  • Emergency Responses
  • Personal Safety
  • Professionalism
  • Security for High-Profile Cases
  • Judicial Security

This two-day training can be hosted by any agency.  All you need to do is provide the facility, NSA provides the rest.  A minimum of 25 attendees is required to hold the training for the cost of only $335 per person.  A flat fee of $8,000 is charged for classes of less than 25.
