Sheriff Departments

March 29, 2015

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 Texas courts, check the TX Courthouse Locations page on our site. For telephone numbers and addresses for sheriff departments in Texas, go to Sheriffs’ Association of Texas.
