New Courthouse Security Measures
Effective March 9th 2015 the Pottawattamie County will be implementing additional security measures at the Pottawattamie County Courthouse. In an effort to provide a safer workplace and place of business an x-ray machine and walkthrough metal detector have been installed in the first floor lobby of the courthouse to screen individuals and personal belongings for weapons and other contraband not allowed into the building. Prohibited items include firearms, knives or any other weapons, including items which could be used as a weapon as determined by the Sheriff’s Office.
In an effort to expedite the screening process please only bring required or necessary items with you into the courthouse to conduct your business.
