Coronavirus:

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sheriff’s Office is actively working on plans to limit exposure of our deputies and the general public.

Effective immediately, we are going to begin handling some calls via telephone. When dispatch receives a call, they will continue to deal with the call following their normal protocols. They will CAD (notate) and dispatch the call to the appropriate unit as usual. It will be the responsibility of the deputy and the on-duty supervisor to evaluate which calls can be handled via telephone. Once a determination is made that it is a “telephone” response, the deputy will make contact with the complainant via phone and provide the appropriate information and complete the proper paperwork.

As a reminder, this is a fluid situation that will be changing daily. We will continue to re-evaluate the situation and make adjustments as needed.

Sheriff’s Office personnel attempt delivery of legal process to the individuals to be served. This is based on the address provided by the court. If we are unable to locate the subject of the process, a “pink” notice is left with contact and pickup information. If you receive a notice, you can call the Sheriff’s Office to arrange delivery of the process or you can come to the office and pick up the papers.

The State of Alabama confers on the sheriff the duty of executing and serving process on the defendant of a civil lawsuit. Ala. Code § 36-22-3(a)(1). State law requires strict compliance with the rules of service of process specified in Rule 4 of the Alabama Rules of Civil Procedure. (Ex parte Shuttleworth, 410 So. 2d 896, 900 (Ala. 1981)?) The purpose of service is to notify or inform the defendant of the action filed against him or her. Moore v. Moore, 424 So. 2d 1312, 1314 (Ala. Civ. App 1982). Failure to accomplish this purpose could render any judgment made against the defendant void. Sams v. Equitable Life Assurance Soc'y, 402 So. 2d 999, 1001 (Ala. Civ. App. 1981).
