Arrests for driving under the influence have declined each of the past three years statewide and each of the past four years in Davison County.
Law enforcement officials say the trend is driven by a variety of factors, including an aggressive program to keep DUI offenders from drinking, public awareness of sobriety checkpoints and the rise of new taxi services.
Area criminal-justice officials approve of having cameras in circuit courtrooms, but some have concerns with how the system would work.
They support the idea of showing the public how the court system works.
“People would have a better understanding of what is happening in the courtroom rather than relying on TV shows,” said Pat Smith, Davison County state’s attorney.
