Much like the Racine County Public Safety Building, visitors to the Racine County Courthouse will now need to go through a security checkpoint to enter the building.

Starting Tuesday, the general public and courthouse employees will be required to go through the security checkpoint before entering the building. The project was put into place to improve safety and security within the building. The checkpoint, an entrance on the east plaza off of Wisconsin Avenue, is staffed by security personnel.

All other entrances have been secured.

Items that are prohibited from the courthouse as well as the law enforcement center include but are not limited to:

  • Guns/Firearms
  • Ammunition
  • Sharp Objects
  • Drugs (Illegal)
  • Box Cutters
  • Bottle Openers
  • Tools
  • Nail Clippers
  • Letter Openers
  • Blades
  • Scissors
  • Glass Objects

To assist the public with payments to the Treasurer’s Office, a drop box is located outside the Courthouse on Wisconsin Avenue. Payments may be dropped in the box and if a self-addressed stamped envelope is enclosed, the Treasurers Office will mail a receipt to the payee.
