COURTHOUSE DIVISION

Sergeant Bradley Moody

The Courthouse Security Division personnel have the responsibilities of providing and maintaining an orderly and safe environment for all visitors and employees within Kaufman County Courthouse facilities.

 The integrity of courthouse security is vital to the uninterrupted functioning of the Court System and all official County business. To ensure the achievement of this goal, persons and their possessions entering Kaufman County Courthouse facilities are, by court order, subject to security screening, including the use of walk-through metal detectors, hand-held metal detectors, x-ray machines. The security checkpoints are the first line of defense against weapons and contraband being brought into courthouse facilities.

Courthouse facilities are often melting pots where litigants are brought together to resolve disputes. Thus, it is required that Deputies conduct constant proactive and preventive patrol of all areas of the facilities, and remain abreast of court proceedings and courthouse activities. Deputies respond to a variety of calls for service, including disturbances, duress alarms, taking persons into custody, escorts, parking enforcement, accident investigation, and other reports as needed. They also provide security and protection for judges and juries.
