3.5 The Police and Department of Corrections

Defendants who attend court and are held in the court custodial cells are the responsibility of either the Police or Department of Corrections.  Defendants who are being held in custody are transported to the court by the Police or Department of Corrections. Once defendants are in the court cells, they remain the responsibility of either of these agencies for the period of time they are in court. This includes when defendants are moved from the court cells into the courtroom or to another part of the courthouse.
