JURY SERVICE-A VITAL FUNCTION OF DEMOCRACY
Jury service is one of the highest duties of citizenship. It will give you an opportunity to learn about our system of justice and to see your courts operate. While it may require some adjustment of your normal schedule and routine to serve as a juror, we hope that any inconvenience will be minimal.
Please use good judgment and report properly dressed. Shorts, extremely short skirts & tee shirts are inappropriate attire. We cannot be responsible for personal belongings and suggest that you do not bring expensive articles with you.
DO NOT BRING CHILDREN.
You will receive an expense allowance for each day that you report to the facility. Checks are mailed following your service.
