Courthouse Security

Security in a public building, especially government offices, is an unfortunate necessity of our times. All persons, purses, backpacks, packages entering the courthouse are screened for weapons.

Following is a list of prohibited items:

  • Any and ALL firearms and stun guns.
  • Any and ALL knives or edged instruments.
  • Aerosol Sprays.
  • Pepper and mace sprays.
  • Razor Blades.
  • Scissors.
  • Tools or utensils of any kind.
  • Knitting needles or hat pins.
  • Explosive or flammable devices or material.
  • Heavy metal objects such as locks, chains, handcuffs, large keys.
  • Any item which could be construed as a potential weapon, at the discretion of the Court.

Prohibited items that are not illegal to possess will be retained at the screening area and a receipt will be given for the item. The item will be returned to you when you leave the building.
