Courting trouble: Overcrowding and security concerns at Will County Courthouse

Author: Editor

If you live in the Will County part of Naperville and have been called for jury duty, you know the hassle that going to the Will County Courthouse can be at any time.

Long before the doors open at 8:30 a.m., people are lined up outside the Will County Courthouse in downtown Joliet. It takes awhile to get inside the building, through an outdated security system, and up one of four elevators to their destination.

The courthouse is a bustling building where thousands come to pay a traffic ticket, look up court cases, have a case tried by a judge or jury, seek an order of protection, get divorced or serve as a juror. Dealing with crowds and waiting in line is part of their visit here — but there are more issues for those who work here every day.
