Armoured vehicles guarded a police academy in a Cairo suburb where for security reasons the trial is being held, the television reported.
Adly, sentenced in a previous trial to 12 years for corruption, is accused of ordering police to fire on protesters during an 18-day revolt that started on January 25 and toppled the regime.
Adli's trial opened on August 3, the same day as former president Hosni Mubarak made his first court appearance in a stretcher along with his two sons, who are charged with corruption.
Both Adly and Mubarak, also charged with premeditated murder, could be executed if convicted. The next hearing in the former president's trial is scheduled for Monday.
