General Instructions for Reporting to Jury Service

  • All persons entering the Courthouse are required to proceed through a security checkpoint and have bags, purses, packages, etc., examined through an x-ray machine.  Please have a valid photo identification available. 

  • It is important that you report on time. If you arrive too late to participate in the jury selection process, you may be released without compensation. Should circumstances arise which will delay you or prevent you from reporting, call the jury division as soon as possible at the telephone number provided on your summons.

  • Jury selection can be a long process, therefore, we advise you to have a full breakfast or travel with a snack.

  • Wear appropriate clothing which is neat, presentable and respectful toward the court and your fellow jurors. “Business casual” attire is recommended. Shorts, tank tops, halter tops and flip-flop sandals are not considered appropriate attire. Since our courtrooms are often quite cool, consider bringing a sweater, light jacket or wrap with you.

  • Coffee, soft drinks and bottled water are provided in the jury assembly room. If you are selected for a trial, the court will provide lunch for you.

  • Cell phones, cameras, laptop computers, magazines, books, newspapers, pocket knives, scissors, or any recording or electronic devices are prohibited.
