The Civil Division of the department is commanded by our undersheriff, who oversees our Special Investigations Unit, Community Services Unit, Senior Services Unit, Home Security Unit, and Civil Process Servers. Our Civil Division handles Sheriff’s Sales / Foreclosure Sales Listing, Writs of Execution / Wages, and Summons and Complaints Service.
Our Civil Division is broken down into four different sections. Each section handles court papers with an array of procedures that must be followed. The majority of these court papers are issued out of the Superior Court of New Jersey, but in some cases ‘out of state’ papers must also be handled.
Please take note that effective May 1, 2019 all checks addressed to this office must be made payable to “Burlington County Sheriff’s Department” or the “Sheriff of Burlington County.”
