About the Court Services Division
The Court Services Division serves thousands of civil papers throughout Summit County each year. They are also responsible for court security services in District and Justice Courts.
State law requires the Summit County Sheriff’s Office to serve civil papers relating to judicial actions such as protective orders, judgments, garnishments, summons, writs, and subpoenas. A dangerous job, officers have been seriously injured while serving civil papers to unwilling litigants or suspects involved in domestic violence cases: therefore, we use only experienced, well-trained officers in this unit.
Approximately 500 people per day pass through a security checkpoint and magnetometer prior to entering the Justice Center. Deputies provide as many as 350 man hours in court security, 400 man hours of service as bailiffs, and 50 man hours transporting prisoners for court appearances each month.
The Summit County Justice Center is a “secured” facility. You will be required to submit to screening prior to entering the facility. You can make this process much quicker by removing all unnecessary metal objects from your pockets, securing purses, backpacks, or briefcases in your vehicle, and removing overcoats prior to entering the building.
