Building Security

Building security for our county government is provided by the Sheriff’s office. Security to enter the courthouse and offices within the Human Services Department are the main focus of security personnel. During high profile trial proceedings, the courthouse is considered of higher risk, and main doors are locked to the general public. Employees wearing their government identification badges are permitted to enter through security scanners set up at the lower-level door; all other persons entering the courthouse during a high-profile trial will need to walk through our security scanners, relinquishing any weaponry or other devices considered harmful to other persons or our building. For additional information, please contact the Sheriff's office at 724-852-5218 during normal business hours.

Also recently implemented is our county office building security; uptown offices are being patrolled three times daily by two security guards. These guards walk each floor of each of the county office buildings in uptown Waynesburg. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Sheriff's office at 724-852-5218 during normal business hours.

In June 2014, proximity/ID cards for county building entrance were also implemented for added security. Approximately 300 ID cards were issued to county employees to replace building keys. The cards serve both as a County ID and to open the doors to the uptown offices, including the courthouse, county office building, Ben Franklin, Fort Jackson, and 911. Using a key to enter a door will be considered a forced entry and the logs need to be kept clean for actual problems. For questions on the id cards, contact the IT office at 724-852-5296 or Human Resources at 724-852-5200.
