Juror Reporting Instructions
PLEASE CALL 410-838-3172
AFTER 5:00 PM, the evening before your report date,
FOR FINAL REPORTING INSTRUCTIONS*
Please report promptly by 9:30 A.M. to the 3rd Floor Jury Assembly Room of the Courthouse, 20 W. Courtland Street Bel Air, MD 21014.
TO EXPEDITE THE CHECK IN PROCESS, PLEASE HAVE YOUR JUROR BADGE READY WHEN YOU REPORT. Your service is for one day OR one trial/grand jury term. You must plan to be available all day, which could be until 5:00 p.m. or later; however each day is different. We never know ahead of time how the day is going to go.
Jurors park, free of charge, on the roof top level only of the parking garage located on the corner of Courtland Street & Hickory Avenue. Be sure to place your parking permit or a note on your dashboard (visible through the windshield). Note: If the roof top level is closed, you may park on levels 4 and 5, but be sure to still have your permit displayed.
If your vehicle exceeds the height of the garage (6 feet, 11 inches) or if you require handicap parking, please contact our office, by email or phone, preferable before your report date, for parking instructions.
IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER - IF HARFORD COUNTY SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED, JURORS ARE CANCELLED.* IF SO, YOUR OBLIGATION IS COMPLETE FOR THIS CALENDAR YEAR. IF HARFORD COUNTY SCHOOLS HAVE A DELAYED OPENING, THE SAME APPLIES FOR JURY DUTY. (Example: IF SCHOOLS ARE 2 HOURS LATE, YOU ARE TO REPORT FOR JURY DUTY 2 HOURS LATE.)
*If you are already seated as a grand juror OR as a juror on a continuing trial/case, you must report as instructed by the State's Attorney's Office (grand jury) or as instructed by the Judge presiding over the case (trial juror). You do not follow the same inclement weather policy.
