The Long County Sheriff's Office is tasked with processing and serving civil papers. Civil papers are received from our local courts as well as courts throughout the country. After incoming papers are processed, they are served by uniformed deputies to citizens and businesses located in Long County.

As a general rule, civil papers are served within seven working days of receipt by the Clerk of Court or received by our office. The service is recorded in the Clerk of Court's office and a copy of the Sheriff's Service Form is mailed to the Plaintiff. Please do not call the office to check the status of service, until 7 working days have passed. Once service is perfected, notice is mailed to the Plaintiff and returned to the courts.
