The Hall of Justice Security Committee has updated the policy for the Hall of Justice Identification Badges.

The terms of the updated policy will become Effective June 1, 2013. Orange badges will not be valid after June 1st. Photo ID badges issued prior to March 1, 2013 will not be valid after June 1st. These badges are valid for two years.

Applicants can either make an appointment to have their photo taken at the Government Center 4th floor/ General Services Department or provide the County with a digital photo that meets the following requirements:

  • JPEG format
  • Color photo
  • No hats or sunglasses
  • For best results avoid clothing with stripes or heavy prints
  • Neutral light colored background

Photos can be submitted via email to or sent to General Services Administration on a CD. Use the person’s name as the file name for each photo.

A $10.00 fee will be charged for each badge. This fee will also apply to each bi-annual renewal, replacement of lost badges, and for name changes. We can only accept checks or money orders made payable to Forsyth County General Fund. Payment is due when the badges are picked up.
