FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- Davis County is boosting its security.
County commissioners recently approved a letter of intent to do business with a security firm called AlphaCorp for just under $500,000.
The security firm would keep a close watch over the county's buildings. Davis County owns at least 35 buildings, including the courthouse, seven libraries, golf courses, a health department and an events center.
County officials say the new security system will implement a combination of smart access cards, video surveillance and some recording devices.
Officials say there hasn't been very many break-in attempts on county offices. However, they say video cameras will allow them to keep close watch over parking lots in case of slip-and-fall injury claims or other claims against the county.
