The safety of our staff and the community we serve is very important to us. In compliance with the Center for Disease Control, Tacoma/Pierce County Health Department, and Governor Inslee’s Safe Start Washington, we want to make you aware of a few changes you will notice when you visit Juvenile Court.
In partnership with our Facilities department, we have deep cleaned the facility and will be frequently wiping down touch points each day. We have installed additional hand sanitizer stations. To support social distancing, we removed seating in the court lobby. We have modified our court calendars to limit the number of people in the lobby at one time. We would like to thank you, in advance, for your help in keeping each other healthy.
The following requirements are necessary to maintain a safe environment:
Wear a face covering - All people entering the Juvenile Court are required to wear a mask, including staff, attorneys and visitors.
Maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. If not available, please use hand sanitizer.
If you are feeling sick please stay home. Contact your attorney or probation officer immediately and notify them of your condition so they may assist in rescheduling court.
The Pierce County Juvenile Court has exclusive jurisdiction over those juveniles within Pierce County who violate the criminal laws of this state or who are in need of protection and/or advocacy as a result of abuse, neglect or abandonment. The Juvenile Department provides probation, court, detention and adoption services.
