Civil Process

The sheriff’s office has the responsibility of serving and executing court-issued documents throughout the county.  Among the most common documents served are summons and complaints, and small claim court documents. Evictions, Writ of Executions, Protection Orders and Subpoenas for criminal and civil cases are also processed. We service other legal documents as received from the courts, attorneys and private citizens.
