*********************** IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS -- PLEASE READ ***********************
ON THE DAY OF YOUR SERVICE:
1) Please plan ahead and arrive early. Expect a significant wait to enter the building, much like the airport, as the lines will be long due to important security screening measures. Reporting time is listed on your summons as 8:30 am, but the doors do open at 7:30, and you must be in the building and checked in before 8:30.
2) *** BE SECURITY READY! ***
All persons and belongings are subject to search, so plan accordingly. Arrive 30-60 minutes before your reporting time to allow extra time for security screening (this is only an estimate – wait times vary day to day). Please pack light and only bring items that you need to get through the day – the more you bring with you, the longer the screening process will take.
Many items are not permitted inside the building. AT NO TIME WILL UNAUTHORIZED ITEMS BE HELD AT SCREENING STATIONS OR LEFT WITH SECURITY. Unauthorized items (if not deemed illegal) can be taken outside and left in a vehicle. However, if you choose not to return unauthorized items to your vehicle, items will be placed in the unauthorized property bin and will not be returned to the owner.

Weapons: Firearms, Knives/Blades/Razors/Box Cutters, OC/CS/CN/Pepper Spray, Baton/Clubs/Brass Knuckles/Car Eye Defense Tool, Taser/Stun Gun/ERD
Restraint Devices: Handcuffs/Thumb Cuffs, Handcuff/Restraint Keys
