Dressing properly for your court appearance is extremely important.  It will be essential in not only expressing your understanding of the seriousness of the hearing, but will also help assure a safe and appropriate environment.  You will not be allowed into the courtroom unless you are appropriately dressed.

  • Shorts
  • Tank Tops
  • Halters or Bar Midriffs

  • Clothing with emblems that condone illegal or inappropriate activity

Cell phones are to be turned off prior to entering the courtroom.  Gum chewing, food and drink are not allowed.  If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask the Bailiff prior to your appearance.

Court Security CourtSecurity_001

We take court security seriously.  The court has an onsite bailiff who screens all individuals prior to entering the courtroom.  Each bailiff is Category 1 P.O.S.T certified.  It is important for your safety, and the safety of others, that you do not bring any weapon(s) or anything that appears to be a weapon into the courthouse.  Because every individual is screened, it is often best to leave unnecessary items in your vehicle or at home.

If you are a witness, victim or Temporary Protective Order applicant, and you are uncomfortable with waiting in the lobby for a hearing, please notify a clerk and we can have the bailiff escort you into a separate area of the courthouse.
