Photo ID Required at Rudman-Cleveland Complex
In the interest of safety for all Rudman/Cleveland complex employees and visitors, all individuals entering either the Rudman Courthouse or the Cleveland Federal Building through the main entrance will be required to produce a picture ID card issued by either a state or federal governmental agency effective immediately. Children under 16, who are accompanied by an adult with a proper ID, are exempt.
|The Rudman Courthouse in Concord.
The U.S. Marshals Service, which provides security for this joint use facility, has authority to refuse entry to anyone who fails to produce proper picture identification. While facility employees should either wear their employee ID or have them available so court security officers can quickly and easily verify their identity, visitors to the facility will be required to present a valid picture ID each time prior to entrance. FMR § 102.74.375(c).
U.S. Marshals Service Supervisors will be available to address any issues that arise.
Attorneys admitted to the bar of this court may apply for special Bar Member Credentials that will both serve as their picture ID and expedite their processing through the magnetometer. The application can be completed and submitted through the website, selecting "Attorneys/Committees" on the left navigation bar, and then selecting "Bar Member Credential" on the fly out. Taking the photograph and issuance of the actual ID card, however, must be done personally at the courthouse by making an appointment. To do so, please contact Thomas Van Beaver.
Editor’s Note: The federal court ID was developed separately from the NH Bar Association identification card. The NH Bar Association is working to better integrate the courthouse identification programs of the various court jurisdictions in NH in the future.
