Delaware County Sheriff’s Office

Court Room Security and Prisoner Transportation

 

The Sheriff’s Office provides a wide range of services to the county and its residents.  Deputy Sheriffs are responsible for the security and protection of citizens and as follows:

Sheriff’s Deputies are assigned to each criminal courtroom and are responsible for maintaining the custody of incarcerated defendants who are required to appear before the court.  This includes the transport of prisoners to and from county state and federal institutions for court appearances.  The Sheriff’s Office has an Extradition Unit for the retrieval of fugitives who are captured out of state to return them to Delaware County for adjudication and incarceration.  

Deputies are also responsible for the safety of the Judge and all persons in the courtroom during proceedings.

In addition, Deputy Sheriffs are likewise responsible for the custody of juvenile defendants (those under the age of 18) and their transportation to and from detention centers for court appearances, plus the security of the Judge and all persons in the courtroom during juvenile proceedings.
