Court Services Unit

Responsibilities

The Court Services Unit is responsible to protect the integrity of all court proceedings, arrange all Departmental transports, and the service of all civil process proceedings. Their duties include protection of Judges, court officials, defendants, jurors, witnesses and the general public while they are in the Government Center. They are also responsible to arrange all transports needed for extraditions, detainers, writs, probate patients, and juveniles that are under a commitment order. This unit is also responsible for serving or executing according to law, all processes, writs, precepts, and orders issued or made by lawful authority according to WI Statute 59.27(4). They also process extraditions, detainers, and writs.

Courtroom Security

Court Deputies routinely address security within the respective courtrooms. In addition, they are called upon to take persons into custody on warrants, disruptive subjects, and court-ordered subjects. The Deputies also respond to medical emergencies, transfer in custody defendants and witnesses to and from courtrooms, handle disturbances within the Government Center and answer questions from the public.

Court Services Unit Processes

Court Services Unit processes a large volume of traffic citations, juvenile citations, and County Ordinances written by not only St. Croix County Sheriff’s Office, but for all the municipalities within the county. The Deputies also provide security at all restraining order hearings, felony sentencing, drug court, juvenile court and child support hearings.

Government Center Security

The Government Center’s security responsibilities are both considerable and important, and at the same time require a strong partnership with the courts and all employees within the Government Center.
