Security Screenin​g

Everyone who enters the Courthouse is required to go through security screening. To facilitate faster screening, there are separate screening lanes for Courthouse employees and attorneys. You must have and wear your ID badge to enter the building, and should wear it throughout the workday. Report lost IDs to your Agency Representative. There is a fee to replace lost access cards.

Security Trai​ning

Building security is extensive, but employees must also share in the responsibility for security by being personally prepared for the unexpected. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has created four online tutorials to help employees ensure a more secure workplace. These courses are accredited, therefore you must be registered with an assigned Federal Student Identification Number​ to complete them.
