Courthouse Security Pass

Tired of waiting in long security lines at the courthouse? You need a courthouse security pass! KCMBA is happy to sell a courthouse security pass to any attorney who is in good standing with his or her state Bar and is a member of KCMBA. This pass will allow you to bypass security lines at both the Jackson County (both locations) and Clay County courthouses.

How do I obtain a courthouse security pass?

To get a courthouse security pass, please visit KCMBA headquarters at 2300 Main Street, Suite 100 anytime between the hours of 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM Monday - Friday to have your picture taken and your card printed out. Unfortunately, we cannot accept electronic files for security pass headshots.  If you are renewing a pass you can come into KCMBA or renew online below. You must be a KCMBA member to renew a courthouse security pass.


How much does a pass cost?

The price of a new card is $60.00, with an annual renewal cost of $40.00. Annual renewal of security passes begins each year in July, at which time you will receive an e-mail notice to renew your pass by the end of the month.  Please note that if your pass is not renewed by July 31st, it will be deactivated until you complete the renewal process.

What should I do if my pass is not working?

If your courthouse security pass is not working, please give us a call at (816) 474-4322. Please note that a non-functioning security pass usually means that a) you have not yet renewed your pass for the year, and it has been deactivated, or b) your card is broken. If you have not yet renewed your pass, we will ask you to pay the $40.00 renewal fee by cash, check, or credit card in order to have your pass reactivated. If there are cracks or dents in your card, we ask that you please stop by KCMBA headquarters so that we may print you a new pass for a fee of $25.00.

What if I lost my pass?

If you lost or misplaced your card, please visit KCMBA headquarters anytime between the hours of 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM Monday - Friday to get a replacement card for a fee of $25.00. In this case, your old card will be deactivated for security purposes.
