The Greene County Sheriff’s Office Civil Division currently consists of a Lieutenant, a Corporal, two clerical employees, ten full-time Deputy Sheriffs and one Reserve Deputy. This unit is responsible for attempting service of legal documents related to ongoing court cases here in Greene County as well as from across the nation. This legal documentation generally includes summons, complaints, garnishments, subpoenas, ex parte orders of protection, writs, and a wide variety of court related documents. While the Civil Division is primarily responsible for carrying out duties directed by the courts; such as court ordered stand by assistance to retrieve property, evictions, and providing transportation for respondents involved in mental health hearings, they also provide additional support to deputies taking calls for service when the need arises. The Civil Division also processes and conducts all Sheriff’s Sales related to real estate levies and general executions to levy upon personal property.

Two clerical employees assigned to the Civil Division receipt and track all incoming documentation. The Summons Clerk handles a variety of tasks related to data entry, financial tracking, and customer service.
