The doors will be locked but offices will still be working via email and phone calls to assist the public.
(Jefferson County, Ind.) - Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Courthouse and County Annex Buildings will be close to the general public starting Tuesday, March 17. Access to all the departments will be by appointment only.
If you have a court hearing that is scheduled for this time it will be rescheduled, your new appointment date will be mailed to you.
When going to the courthouse without an appointment, the doors will be locked, and you will need to call the office upon arrival so they can then notify the security desk to let you in.
All of the county phone numbers will be listed on the front door for your convenience.
If you are going to the courthouse to drop off documents, protective orders or general documents that need to be dropped off at the courthouse, there will be a dropbox located out front.
If you have any further questions, you can contact the commissioner's office at 812-265-8944 or use the general inquiry link.
