Civil Process Unit
One of the Sheriff’s statutory responsibilities is to provide the citizens of Salt Lake County a way to serve civil papers relating to judicial actions filed with the court. Some of the civil paper services offered are protective orders, judgements, garnishments, summons, writ of assistance and subpoenas. Our Deputies are professional and well trained in providing the best service to those involved in court cases.

Constables are paid by a citizen or an attorney to serve the processes they have. The Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office has no legal authority to serve or be present at the time of service of their orders. Deputies may stabilize the situation if a breech of peace has occurred involving a constable. The case should be handled as any “keep the peace” call.
