This article explores security in administrative hearings throughout the United States, as well as issues that affect it. To that end, a survey was circulated among members of the National Association of Administrative Law Judges (NAALJ) and their colleagues in September 2005 to gauge the level of security devoted to administrative hearings nationwide, as well as the level of perceived or actual risk to safety. Additionally, this article offers suggestions and resources to agencies to address security concerns in hearings. Furthermore, it identifies and discusses pertinent case law and other materials helpful in formulating agency policy regarding the adoption of security measures.
