WARRANT AND CIVIL PROCESS

The Warrant Division of the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department is responsible for tracking and serving warrants, subpoenas, and civil papers throughout Lexington County. Once a warrant is issued by a judge or magistrate, the warrant is delivered to the Warrant Division to then be served.

Warrant Division personnel then set out to locate and apprehend wanted subjects. Deputies assigned to the Warrant Division work closely with investigators and members of the Sheriff’s Department Fugitive Unit to coordinate resources and apprehension efforts. When serving particularly dangerous or high-risk warrants, the Sheriff’s Department’s SWAT team may also be called upon for assistance.

The Warrant Division is also responsible for serving civil papers to include Family Court bench warrants, evictions, executions, liens, and judgments for civil process.

Warrant Division personnel also transport suspects to and from other detention facilities for court proceedings and will occasionally travel out-of-state to extradite prisoners back to Lexington County.
