Jury Duty

Jury Duty: A Privilege, A Right and A Duty
An inside look at Jury Duty

For many generations, trial by jury has been a cornerstone of our criminal justice system. Through participation in the jury system, the people of a community play a direct role in the administration of justice.

The Jury system is also an important safeguard in preserving our democratic system of government. It represents one of a citizen's most important duties. By performing this civic duty, we help maintain our own rights and freedoms.
