This division is responsible for:
- receiving, processing and serving all legal documents requiring Sheriff's service. As many of these processes can result in the “attachment” of personal property in order to satisfy debts as well as the legal “eviction” of tenants for landlords that have properly used the court process to effect the eviction, they are quite time-consuming. At times the personal property that has been “attached” must be sold at a Sheriff’s Auction to satisfy the debt owed. This function is responsible for the auction requirements.
- performing and completing background investigations and testing processes for all applicants for employment with the Sheriff’s Office.
- responding to all calls for service for violations of county codes. The deputy works collaboratively with the County Administrator's Office, Community Development staff, Public Works staff, and the County Attorney to respond and facilitate assistance.
- providing bailiffs to courts, transporting prisoners to and from court appointments, operate metal detectors and other security devices as required, as well as be present within court, when in session. Likewise, a function of this divison is to ensure a full-time deputy is staged at the courthouse entrance to scan all individuals entering for weapons, and protect citizens and court employees against possible threats.
- investigating concealed weapon permit applications, per the cod of Virginia.
- coordinating the training and development for all personnel, maintaining records, and schedules, as well as creating a database of certifications for accreditation purposes.
