Jury Service and COVID-19
Arizona courts take public health and safety seriously and have implemented aggressive policies to prevent the risk of infection for jurors and other court users.
Term of Jury Service
An average trial usually lasts from two to five days. If you are qualified to serve as a trial juror, you will be summoned approximately ten (10) days before your appearance date. Do not report until summoned.
You may receive a juror questionnaire by mail; this questionnaire is NOT a jury summons. Please read the questionnaire carefully before filling it out. These are all important questions which will be used to help qualify you for active jury duty. Complete and return the questionnaire as soon as possible, by either mailing (800 W. Main Street, Safford AZ 85546) or emailing the questionnaire to the Clerk of the Court at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also fill out the questionnaire online.
- Call 928-792-5164 after 5:00 P.M. the day prior to your report date to see whether you should appear or if your presence is not required due to a postponement or cancellation.
- Upon your arrival to the Courthouse, please report to the Clerk of the Court’s Office or Bailiff to sign in.
Please do not bring any children under the age of eighteen (18) to court.
If you report after jury service has been cancelled, you will not be paid. It is your responsibility to call the evening before your reporting day.
Failure to report to Court for jury duty as instructed may result in your being brought before the Judge on contempt of court charges.
If you receive a summons and have a conflict, please notify our office at 928-792-5164 immediately.
