The Significance of Jury Service

Jury service is a fundamental civic duty, ranking second only to the right to vote, and is a core element of the American Justice System. In accordance with the United States Constitution, jurors are selected impartially and randomly, without regard to race, gender, occupation, education, or economic status, to ensure a representative cross-section of the county's population. The Justice of the Peace courts in Chambers County also follow this practice, selecting jurors from throughout the county, regardless of precinct of residence.

The judgments delivered by a jury hold great importance, whether the case is highly complex, involving significant sums, or as straightforward as a traffic violation. Every juror must take their responsibility seriously to ensure a fair and just court decision. Responding to the summons for jury duty is a shared responsibility for all Chambers County residents, contributing to the principles of our justice system.

Warning: Beware of Jury Service Scams!

No one from Chambers County will ever call or text you requesting you pay a fine for failing to appear for jury service. If you receive this type of communication, please notify the Chamber County Sheriff's Office.
