Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

   Pursuant to Neb. Rev. Stat. §§ 24-515 and 23-120, Nebraska counties are responsible for providing suitable housing for the courts of the state.  

   In the interest of protecting court employees and the public, the following security standards have been adopted as a supplement to the standards for facility planning: 
 
   (1) Security in courtrooms. Each courtroom in the state shall be equipped with a panic button and shall contain bullet-resistant material behind the judge’s bench. 
 
   (2) Separate entrances and corridors shall be provided for the public, court employees and prisoners. 
Standards for court facilities have been adopted by the Supreme Court and can be found in the document “Nebraska Courts:  Facility Planning Guidelines and Standards.”  This document is available from the Supreme Court Administrative Office of the Courts.
