In the Pre-Coronavirus Pandemic Age, prior practice permitted members of the public and defense counsel to ‘walk in’ to public areas of our office without an appointment. Police officers freely entered the office unescorted. Post Pandemic, for the safety of our employees, we can no longer permit this prior practice.
Effective June 1, 2020, only employees of the District Attorney’s Office will be permitted to enter the Courthouse Office without an appointment. Please click "See Full Notice" for additional details. See Full Notice
