Civil Process / Accreditation / Applicant Background Investigations
This function is responsible for:
processing and serving all legal papers issued by courts and attorneys to citizens of Campbell County. As many of these processes can result in the “attachment” of personal property in order to satisfy debts as well as the legal “eviction” of tenants for landlords that have properly used the court process to effect the eviction, they are quite time-consuming. At times the personal property that has been “attached” must be sold at a Sheriff’s Auction to satisfy the debt owed. This function is responsible for the auction requirements.
assisting with the accreditation efforts of the department. The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office is a state accredited agency through the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC). VLEPSC issues 187 professional standards that agencies must prove compliance with in order to maintain their accredited status. The Sheriff’s Office was originally accredited in 1999, and has passed successfully thereafter.
