The Department of General Services and Division of Capitol Police have instituted new building security protocols for Capital Square facilities, including Main Street Centre. These guidelines must be followed when attending Board of Juvenile Justice meetings on the 12th floor. Anyone who is not a state employee assigned to Main Street Centre must sign in and sign out with the security officers in the lower lobby. You will need to show a picture ID. Please note that you will not be allowed to go directly to the meeting room after signing in with the security officers. You will need to wait for a Department of Juvenile Justice staff member to escort you, which may take several minutes, so please plan accordingly. Likewise, Department of Juvenile Justice staff will need to escort you back out after the meeting ends.
