The San Francisco Superior Court has its operations in four facilities.

The Civic Center Courthouse (CCC) opened in 1998 after damage from the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake forced the Court to relocate from its City Hall location.

Several blocks away, the Polk Street Annex is home to the Community Justice Center.

The Hall of Justice (HOJ) is the location of the Criminal courthouse where the majority of Criminal cases are heard. The Traffic Division also is located at the HOJ.

The Juvenile Justice Center Center handles juvenile matters, including juvenile traffic.

The Polk Street Annex is the location of the Community Justice Center, which includes a co-located courtroom and service center.
