About Court Services

The Court Services Unit is staffed by deputies who maintain a constant presence in the Justice Center while it is open for business.

Court Services deputies are responsible for law enforcement services in and around the Justice Center, including:

  • Controlling a security checkpoint.
  • Maintaining order in the courtroom.
  • Transporting inmates
    • From the courtroom to the Detention Facility
    • Locally - Example:   from the youth detention facility to court or hospital, etc.
    • Long distance - Example: to the Department of Corrections or extraditions from other jurisdictions

The Mesa County Justice Center

The Mesa County Justice Center is estimated to receive nearly half a million visitors yearly.  That is approximately the number of travelers passing through the Grand Junction Regional Airport checkpoints annually.

  • Visitors to the Justice Center will encounter security screening very similar to what is in place at most airports.
  • Signs direct visitors to the appropriate entrance to walk through a metal detector.

Metal detector screening

  • All hand-carried items must be placed through an x-ray machine. When required, those items will be hand searched.
  • Visitors may be requested to remove their shoes, belt, or other articles, including items in their pockets.
  • This screening prevents restricted weapons or contraband from being brought into the justice center.
