Mask Requirement Update:
Pierce County District Court (PCDC) is asking the public to continue to wear masks at all District Court locations including the Tacoma Armory where juror orientation is being held and the Court Resource Center.  Free masks are available at the entrance security check if needed.

Social Distancing:
Social distancing (6 feet between individuals) should be observed inside the building, elevators, stairways, and courtrooms. General seating is limited inside the courtroom. If you are appearing for an in-person court hearing, please wait in line outside the courtroom until there is room for you inside. Once inside the courtroom, sit in designated seats only.

Virtual & In-Person Hearings:
Some court hearings are being held virtually while others are held in-person. The manner in which a hearing will be held (in-person, by phone, video/virtual, etc.) will be determined by the Court with full consideration of all recommended public health guidelines. Jury Trials are being heard on a limited basis. If you have questions whether a courtroom is viewable in person or through live stream, please contact us through LiveChat.

Probation:
Probation appointments are now being held in-person.

Court Resource Center
The District Court Resource Center (CRC) is open for walk-ins, although some partner agencies may only be available virtually. Please contact the CRC for more information (253) 798-7631. What is the CRC?
