The Sheriff's Office is required to provide court protection for court personnel. Criminal and civil proceedings are scheduled three to four times a week. This includes jury trials, divorce proceedings, civil disputes, criminal dockets, preliminary hearings and bench trials. The Sheriff's Office provides at least one bailiff on these days.
Before entering the court proceeding you will be screened for weapons and other illegal items. Proper attire is required and cell phones are not allowed in the courtroom.
