The Civil Division is a state mandated service of the Sheriff's Office. Its purpose and function is to serve and execute the various legal processes issued not only by and for the non-criminal courts of the state and its subdivisions, but also for the legal community and the general public. Departmental and divisional policies and procedures are consistent with New York State and case law. These policies are designed and developed to insure the accurate, expeditious, and judicious service and execution of all matters relating to civil process. Furthermore, the Civil Division maintains related records as required and lawfully collects, maintains and disburses monies.
