New Jury Location

Arriving for Jury Duty
It is helpful to arrive before 8:15 a.m. This will allow you to go through security and be seated by 8:30 a.m.
When you enter the courthouse, you will pass through a metal detector and anything you carry will pass through an x-ray machine. Guns, knives, and other weapons are strictly prohibited. Purses, backpacks or any other type of bag carrying personal items must be clear or see-through.
CLEAR bags or NO bags while at the BASE facility.
Please use the parking lot facing Bosque Blvd, marked in the map below.
