  1. Type in first and last name
  2. The undersigned represents that he or she is an attorney in good standing to practice law before the Courts of the State of Indiana. The undersigned further acknowledges that the access card enabling the attorney to bypass security screening at the Courthouse is subject to the following terms and conditions:
    1. The County Sheriff is responsible for providing security at the Tippecanoe County Courthouse and has the discretion to revoke or deny an attorney’s ability to bypass security provided that such discretion is not exercised in a manner that is arbitrary, capricious, or unlawful.
  3. 2. An access card may be used only by the attorney to whom it was issued.
  4. 3. A separate ID badge will be issued with the access card and must be carried by the attorney while at the Courthouse.
  5. 4. The ability to bypass security does not permit an attorney to bring items into the Courthouse that would be prohibited if the attorney used the public entrance.

  6. a. Pocket knives under 2.5 inches in length.
