Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is getting beefed-up armed security after receiving “serious, credible threats” over his handling of the Breonna Taylor case, according to reports.

Cameron, who empaneled the grand jury that cleared three Louisville cops of criminal liability in Taylor’s March 13 shooting death, will have guards through the end of the year under a $300,000 proposal approved by the state Government Contract Review Committee, CNN reported.

“Our office has received detailed threats against the attorney general, his wife, and members of his family,” Cameron’s office said in a statement to the network. “The attorney general’s protective detail determined that given the credibility of such threats, additional personnel and resources were needed to provide the appropriate level of security.”

Cameron came under fire after Sept. 23, when he announced the results of grand jury proceedings into Taylor’s March 13 shooting death during a botched raid by Louisville police.

Earlier this month, a Kansas man was indicted for calling the attorney general’s office and threatening to kill him, the Courier-Journal reported.
