Court Security

This division is supervised by a Lieutenant who oversees 9 additional deputies serving as bailiffs. These bailiffs are responsible for manning the metal detectors that are at all public entrances of the Johnston County Courthouse, to provide for the safety of employees, visitors, and the officers of the courts. Bailiffs are empowered to maintain the security and integrity of court procedures and ensure the rights of individuals who are seeking justice in our courts.

Bailiffs are assigned to protect the judge, other officers of the courts, and to ensure the decorum of the court while it is in session.
