Sheriff’s Court Security

The Unified Court System contracts with the Sheriff’s Office for Deputy Services in the Supreme, County, Family and Surrogate Courts. Deputies are present to guard and protect Judges, non-judicial officers, and employees, trial jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the general public. Deputies serve as the primary security force in and around the Court House, establishing a safe environment. A Deputy is also assigned to the operation of the Magnetometer (metal detector) located prior to entering the Court House.
