The Civil Process Section of the Winnebago County Sheriff’s office manages evictions, foreclosures, summons and subpoenas within Winnebago County and is comprised of two sections: process serving and sales and foreclosures.
The Civil Process Section consists of: A Sergeant who oversees the day to day operation of the section, both inside and outside the office and handles the foreclosure sales; Two merited deputies who are assigned to handle levies, replevins, evictions and other enforceable orders in addition to making proper service and returns of all papers directed to the Sheriff to be served or enforced; one full-time and two part-time civilian process servers who also make proper service and returns; and two full-time clerical personnel. The civilian process servers are assigned to designated service areas. Process servers work normal office hours but will often adjust their schedule in an effort to complete their services. By adjusting their schedules very few overtime hours are generated.
The Civil Process Section is open to the public from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, and can be reached by calling 815-319-6150.
