Court security is an essential function of the Sheriff's Office. This department is comprised of a Sergeant and
three full time court officers along with several part time officers.
The department falls under the direction of the Patrol Captain. These officers maintain security of the
courtrooms by serving as a bailiff while court is in session. They also are responsible for serving warrants,
manning the X-ray machine and metal detectors which are located at the front door of the courthouse. Officers must
also monitor security cameras which are located in various areas inside and outside of the facility. These officers
are professional and highly trained in the area of court security to handle situations that arise.
