Before a protection order can take effect, it must be served upon the abuser.  In most states, protection orders are served by the sheriff department.  You can contact the clerk of the court in the court that issued your order to find out the procedure for service if you are unsure.  For a list of Pennsylvania courts, check the PA Courthouse Locations page on our site.  Listed below are telephone numbers and addresses for sheriff departments in Pennsylvania, as gathered by the Pennsylvania Sheriffs' Association.
