Allen County Courthouse

Court Security

The Allen County Sheriff's Office Court Officers are responsible for and maintain the security of three (3) county buildings including:  The Allen County Courthouse, The David O. Steiner Juvenile Detention Center and the Allen County Justice Center.

The normal hours of operation for the Court buildings are 8:00AM to 5:00PM Monday through Friday.  All people entering the Court are requested to remove all objects from their pockets and walk through a metal detector.  All packages and carry-type bags are sent through an x-ray machine.  This check is required for the safety and welfare of all who enter the buildings.  The Allen County Sheriff's Office Court Security Officers operate a video arraignment court from the Allen County Common Pleas Courtroom.  Video arraignment provides a great cost savings to the residents of Allen County.  It eliminates the office hours needed to transport inmates to the Court by allowing local law enforcement officers who made the arrest to stay in their assigned patrol areas continuing to provide service to the community.
