Abstract

There have been heightened concerns about security in courts in recent years, prompting a strong response that has largely been focussed on perimeter security.  This paper draws on recent research conducted in Australian on court user’s safety needs, to propose a typology for designing safer courtroom environments that moves beyond the entry point to the court, and incorporates consideration of process and design elements.
