operate under a sound policy with procedures and professional standards that ensure
we are following the best jail practices.

Court Security

The Court Security team coordinates the transportation of inmates from and to the jail
while providing security for the Courts and the general public. There is a security check
point team at the entrance of the courthouse that checks all persons and their
belongings for potential safety threats and weapons. There is typically 300 + persons
that go through this checkpoint daily. In addition to the check point, there is a security
team for the upper level to ensure court operations run smoothly and in a timely
manner.

Inmates

We maintain a list of all the current inmates here. It is updated only once per day.
