Supervisor Don Saltarelli has suggested that the county use money from a $100-million reserve account to pay for an airport-style security system at the central courthouse in Santa Ana. Court administrators said the security system and 17 additional marshals are needed to detect weapons brought into the courthouse. But county officials said they are still struggling to pay for basic court operations and cannot afford the security system right now.

Deepening a rift in a law enforcement turf battle, Orange County Sheriff Brad Gates on Wednesday lashed out at county judges who dismissed a proposal to place courtroom security under his authority. Gates estimates the county could save as much as $19 million over five years if he took control of the functions of the court's marshals. Judges, however, contend that there would be no cost savings and have even questioned the efficiency of Gates' own department.

Board of Supervisors Chairman Harriett M. Wieder and county administrators are studying a plan to transfer security duties for the Orange County court system from the marshal's office to the Sheriff's Department in a move they hope could save about $1 million a year. The plan, if approved, would reverse the decade-old decision to move responsibility for court security to the county marshal.
