What to expect when visiting the Chambers County Courthouse

Entrances and Hours

The Chambers County Courthouse is open Monday - Friday and is accessible from the south ground-level entrance. Note that although there are several other doors on the other sides of the building, these are all fire escapes, and cannot be used as regular entrances.

The Courthouse is open Monday - Friday from 8am - 12pm & 1pm - 5pm.





Upon entry, visitors must pass through a security checkpoint operated by the Chambers County Sheriff's Office. This security checkpoint includes, but is not limited to, an individual screening with a walk-through magnetometer and the screening of any additional items on an X-ray conveyor belt.

Prohibited items

Below is a list of many of the items banned from the Chambers County Courthouse. Please note that it is not all-inclusive, and items are subject to Sheriff's Office approval.

  • Pocket knives over 3"

  • Stun guns
  • Ammunition
  • Corkscrews


  • Bicycle Chains
  • Bolts

Attempting to bring any of these items past security may result in a citation, arrest, or other criminal charges being filed against you.
