Prohibited items include but are not limited to the following: aerosols (spray cans), alcohol (liquor), ammunition (in any form), belts/large buckles, box cutter, can opener, carabiners, chains, combs, corkscrews, drug paraphernalia, fingernail files, fish hooks, forks/spoons (metal), gun/gun belts, hair picks (metal), handcuffs/handcuff keys, knitting needles, knives (any size), large laundry pins, meat thermometers, pad locks, personal defense items, razors, scissors, tape measures (metal), tools (leatherman, etc.) tweezers and any other item as may be deemed potentially dangerous.
There are two security entrances to the Hall of Justice: one on Liberty Street and one on Main Street. All jurors are requested to use the Main Street Entrance as it is normally faster and more convenient. Security Officers will try to move jurors who show their summons through as quickly as possible in keeping with proper security screening.
