Civil Process Division
The Civil Process is composed of Civil Process Officers and Court Security.
Sheriff's Deputies in the Civil Process Division have the daunting tasks of serving papers (lawsuits, child support,

evening, and some weekends to complete service to the appropriate individual.
The Civil Process Division is also responsible for providing security during Family Court and General Sessions
Court at the Edgefield County Courthouse. They are supervisors over inmate escorts, person and property checks at the front and rear
access areas, as well as overall courtroom security.
The deputies in Civil Process also respond to regular road patrol calls to assist the regular patrol officers when
