Welcome to the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court Jury Division

Thank you for being here to participate in a very important part of our system of justice.

How do I know if I have to come to Court for Jury Duty? What is the Code-A-Phone?

Starting on your first day of jury service and for the duration of your term, you will need to call the Jury Division’s Code-A-Phone at 505-841-8158 every day between the hours of 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  The Code-A-Phone is a recorded message that contains daily reporting information.  This recorded message will provide you with clear and concise instructions for the day; i.e. “No jurors are required to report for the day,” or “The following group numbers (located on your summons) are required to report to the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court, Jury Division no later than 1:15 p.m. today."    

When calling the Code-A-Phone, you should listen for the day, date, group number, and report time. If you call the Code-A-Phone and do not hear your group number among those listed, you do not need to report and should call the Code-A-Phone again the next day between the hour of 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for your daily reporting information.  Do not concern yourself with other group numbers; you only need to report for Jury Duty when your group number is required to report.
