It may be helpful to bring reading material, paperwork or a craft as there may be some waiting time prior to your swearing in and orientation as well as during the course of your service.
You may want to dress in layers (i.e. a sweater or light jacket) as sometimes the grand jury room temperature may fluctuate.
Coffee, water, and donuts are provided. There is a refrigerator and a microwave for your use in the Grand Jury Area.
