The province of Manitoba has made some improvements to the Dauphin Courthouse.
Accessibility and security to the courthouse is the focus of the improvements. A handicapped parking spot has been added right next to the building. Access is arranged to the entrance and elevator usually used by judges with a power door opener and activation panels installed for the judges’ entrance.
The Sheriff’s Services are just a button away with a call button being installed for assistance. The existing door has been widened and a new power door opener connected to new access security system was added. Renovations were undertaken to the judges’ washroom to improve handicap accessibility. A portable ramp is available for the purpose of providing handicapped access to the well for the Queen’s Bench’s Courtroom.
Even though they’ve made these improvements, the province is still looking at ways to make it better.
