Security Screening

All persons and items entering the courtroom must be screened through security. Weapons, mace, knives, sharp objects and any item deemed not appropriate will not be allowed in the courtroom or court building. All purses, bags, briefcases and backpacks must be completely emptied and hand-searched prior to entering the courtroom. If your appearance requires you to enter the courtroom you can expedite your screening process by bringing only necessary items with you.
