Each visitor to a courthouse must present a valid official photo identification, such as a state identification, state driver license, federal identification, military identification, or current passport.
Each visitor to a courthouse must pass through a metal detector staffed by court security officers. If an alert sounds, a court security officer will scan the visitor using a handheld wand. The visitor must place personal items in a tray to be scanned by x-ray. If an item appears questionable, the visitor must identify the item and may have to leave the courthouse with it.
