Courthouse Security Plan

Citizens of Jim Wells County:

By order of the Jim Wells County Commissioners Court approved on February 28, 2019, the Courthouse building will implement new security measures on September 16, 2019 that will affect the general public.  

Listed below is the general framework of the plan. 

  • Public access to JWC Courthouse will be limited to the Cameron St. entrance.
  • A deputy will be posted at the public entrance to process members of the public through a metal detector and/or security wand at the security checkpoint.
  • Courthouse personnel will be assigned electronic key cards that will access the west side entrance on Almond Street.
  • North and south doors will be closed to entry but will remain available as emergency exits.
  • Courthouse will be closed to the public during the noon hour.
  • Safety department will be responsible for assigning electronic key cards, equipment implementation and posting signs outside the courthouse directing the public to the Cameron Street entrance.

While we understand that these changes will cause some inconvenience, our ultimate goal is to make both members of the public and courthouse employees more secure.  Please bear with us as we implement these changes.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
