The main objective of court security is to
maintain a safe and secure environment for everyone in the building. Everyone’s
cooperation is needed in order to achieve this very important goal. Weapons of
any kind are strictly prohibited and will be confiscated. Among items
prohibited from court facilities are guns, knives, ammunition, pepper spray,
mace, razor blades, illegal drugs and any other type of dangerous or hazardous
material or property. A variety of items may be prohibited because they are
hazardous or could be used as potential weapons. These include any object that
is sharp, pointed or with a cutting blade regardless of length. If you are
unsure if an item is allowed or not, the safest option is to not bring it.
Court security will not hold unauthorized items for return
later. Any prohibited item that is brought to the court will be taken from you
and permanently destroyed. Before coming to the courthouse, please review the following list.
