Court Security Information

Upon entering the Vermilion Municipal Court you will be required to pass through the security control point located at the front door. This control point is equipped with a magnetometer. If you are carrying anything which can be construed as a weapon, such as a penknife, knitting needles, scissors or box cutters, and so on, you can take it back to your vehicle. If you are found to be carrying a weapon which it is illegal to carry or posses by law, it will be confiscated and you may be arrested.

If you continue to set off the magnetometer after all items are removed, the security officer will pass a handwand around your person to determine what is setting off the alarm.

The security standards and measures employed by the Court are designed to intercept and remove individuals and items that may represent a threat to the peace, order, and dignity of the Court. They are designed to provide appropriate protection for all those using the Court facility and the judicial process while allowing the Court to remain accessible to the community.
