Screening Information

When visiting the courthouse, you will be required to undergo a security screening that includes the following:

  • Show a photo ID issued by a government agency, such as a driver's license or a bar identification card.
  • Place your purse, briefcase, backpack, electronic devices, and any other item that you are carrying on an x-ray machine to be screened.
  • Remove keys, coins, wallets, and all other items in your pockets before walking through a magnetometer.
  • You may be asked to remove your belt, watch, jewelry, and shoes.
  • Luggage will undergo screening similar to what is done by TSA agents for carry-on luggage at airports. Prohibited items include sharp objects, guns and firearms, tools, explosive materials, flammable items, chemicals, martial arts and self-defense items, and sporting goods.
