Salt Lake County Justice Court

This court is located in the south building of the Salt Lake County Government Center. Its main purpose is to serve the citizens of the unincorporated areas of Salt Lake County. The court mainly hears class B misdemeanors and below.

Security for the Justice Court is provided by a team of Protective Services Officers. Officers screen visitors using a magnetometer, x-ray and hand held scanner. Officers additionally manage a small holding area where prisoners are held before court. Our Bailiffs work with the Judge and staff to ensure that they maintain a safe and secure courtroom environment.

Unique duties specific to this location

Our Officers are faced daily with Law Enforcement and Correctional scenarios.

For those visiting the courthouse, please leave all weapons and dangerous items at home or in your vehicle. This includes guns, blades of any size, glass items, laser pointers, chemical sprays, flammable items, or any item that may be considered to be a weapon.
