Courts Division

In the Perry County Courthouse, Deputy Stacy Blankenship provides daily security .  His job duties include monitoring the metal detector, making sure no weapons or cell phones enter the courthouse, and on court day, he is one of several officers who will be making sure everything is wiped down.  COVID-19 has created new duties for this position, none that no one could foresee.

There are two holding cells in the Perry County Courthouse for housing inmates awaiting their cases to be called on the day's docket.  The purpose of a holding cell is to prevent inmates from making faces at potential witnesses or intimidating them in any way.  A Sheriff's Deputy must stay with the inmates at all times in the Courthouse. 

In addition, there may be a third officer available for transport.  All officers must remain available until the last inmate's case is called.  Between cases, the Courthouse security officer and other Sheriff's Deputies check the courtroom and bathrooms for hidden contraband, cleaning for COVID-19, and security checks into the courthouse.
