About your Court Date
At some point, every defendant in our court is issued a court appearance date. If you received a traffic citation, the court appearance date will be at the bottom of the citation, in the space marked "Court Appearance Date". If you were arrested, you were given a court appearance date at the time you bonded out of jail. Please note that the Court is obligated to follow the date on our copy of the records. If you have any questions about your court date, please contact the Court as soon as possible, but no later than the day before your scheduled court date.
Court Security Screening
Upon entering the municipal court area you will be subject to a search of your person and your belongings. This search is carried out via x-ray machine for belongings and a walk-through metal detector for your person. If need be you may also be searched with a handheld metal detector and/or an actual physical pat-down.
The following items will not be allowed past the security checkpoint (and possession of some will result in your immediate arrest):
- Mace/Pepper Spray
- Alcohol or Drugs
- Clothing with Lewd or Suggestive Writing or Images. To ensure a quick and smooth entry into the court area you should not have any of the items listed above. You will not be allowed to leave prohibited items at the security checkpoint. You must leave prohibited items in your vehicle. This is for your safety and the safety of others.
