Court Security


The Scottsdale City Court has full-time security personnel who are stationed at the main entrance to the court.

Everyone who visits the court must pass through a metal detector and must place all personal belongings on an X-ray machine to be viewed. In addition, your personal belongings may be subject to a search.

The following is a list of items that are not allowed in to the courthouse under ANY circumstances:

  • Food and drink, including water. Drinking fountains are located in the courthouse lobby for your convenience.
  • Weapons. This includes, but is not limited to, guns (with or without a concealed weapons permit), knives (including Swiss Army and Leatherman tools), chains, mace, and batons. The Court's definition of weapons also includes items that could be used as weapons. These include, but are not limited to, various tools, kitchen utensils, and nail files.  There is a gun locker available at the security entrance that members of the public can use to store their guns while at the courthouse. 

    Please note: This list is not exhaustive and security has full discretion when deciding what may or may not be brought in to the courthouse.
