The Pennington County Sheriff's Office Civil Division has the responsibility of serving civil documents and executing court orders. Among the most common documents served are Summons and Complaints, Writs of Execution (see below for more information), Distress Warrants, Protection Orders, Notices of Small Claims, and Three Day Notices to Vacate. We also serve other legal documents received from the Courts, attorneys, and private citizens.
Commanded by Captain Marty Graves, the Civil Division has 1 Sergeant, 1 Protection Order deputy, 4 Administrative Support Staff and the four Civil Deputies pictured on the left: Cindy Fullen, Tana Robertson, Dave VanDenHemel and Dave Douma.
A $35 deposit is required on all types of document service, except subpoenas which are $20, and writ of execution which are $45. Once the paperwork is served our service fee and mileage will be subtracted from this deposit. If the deposit is more than the amount of service, a refund will be sent with the return of service. If the deposit did not cover the costs of service a bill will be sent for the remainder.
