Peoria County Sheriff’s Office: Court Security

patch.jpgThe Court Security Division of the Peoria County Sheriff's Office consists of eleven Court Security Officers, two full time Bailiff/Watchmen, eighteen part time Bailiff/Watchmen, and a Central Control Operator. Court Security is responsible for the security of the Courthouse, fourteen judges, thirteen courtrooms, eighteen offices, and the plaza surrounding the Courthouse, which encompasses one square block in downtown Peoria.

Everyone entering the Courthouse must pass through a screening system that utilizes a metal detector and an x-ray machine. Monitoring during business and non-business hours is done by officers both assigned and roving throughout the building and supplemented by cameras, VCR's, duress alarms, and electronic doors.

Assigned along with Court Security is the Civil Process Department of the Sheriff's Office. This division consists of three full time officers, two part-time officers, and two clerks. Together they handle over twenty-four thousand summonses and subpoenas per year. For Courthouse Security or Civil Process questions, write or call:
