BSO HOSTS FIRST CIVIL PROCESS SYMPOSIUM

DATE:  December 5, 2013                                                PIO Number: 13-12-2


     The civil units of the state’s 67 sheriff’s offices carry the statutory responsibility for the service of process and the execution of writs. They handle millions of documents - subpoenas, summonses, complaints, writs of possession of real estate, injunctions for protection against domestic violence, writs of garnishment - that impact the day-to-day lives of Floridians every year.
     The Broward Sheriff’s Office has partnered with Avalon Legal Information Services, Inc. to host the first Civil Process Symposium Friday at the Public Safety Building. It is intended to bring together personnel from civil sections in law enforcement agencies, lawyers, judges and representatives from the clerks of the court offices statewide to share ideas and discuss unifying management ideas in civil processing.
    “This is unprecedented and will undoubtedly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of all of our agencies,” Sheriff Scott Israel said. “We have so much to learn from each other. Just by communicating our successes and challenges, we can figure out the methods and practices that work the best.”
    Course topics will include e-filing, writs of possession, sovereign citizens, service of subpoenas and electronic assets.
     The symposium will take place Friday, Dec. 6, 2013 at the Institute for Criminal Justice Studies in the Ron Cochran Public Safety Building.
