Kankakee County Seal

Trial by jury is a fundamental principle of our system of justice. Jury service is therefore both an opportunity and an obligation of every American citizen. The following information will give prospective jurors some background information about the process and what to expect when reporting for jury duty. All jurors are selected for service by a computer system that randomly selects individuals from a list of county residents who hold a drivers license, a voters registration card, a state identification card, a disabled persons identification card, or who are receiving unemployment compensation. You must be at least 18 years old to serve.

If you have questions pertaining to your jury service, click on the blue toolbar at the top of any of our web pages and select FAQ. You may also contact the Jury Coordinator at (815) 936-5775 Monday through Friday, 8:30 A.M. - 4:30 P.M. The Kankakee County Courthouse is closed on all holidays.
