Topeka Municipal Court to be closed on Monday

The City of Topeka’s Municipal Court and Probation and Prosecution Divisions will be closed to the public on Monday, October 16.

The closure is out of an abundance of caution, and will allow the city to investigate possible security concerns with one of the court’s systems.

During the closure, no in-person dockets or trials will be held, and walk-ins will not be accepted at the court or at the probation and prosecution divisions.

The city is working to notify those impacted by Monday’s closure.

The city expects to be able to provide an update Monday afternoon on the status of the court’s system.

At this time, it is unknown if the possible security concern is associated with the Kansas Supreme Court’s network security incident.
