Sheriff Joel Brott recognized the Volunteer Bailiff’s who help keep the courthouse operating efficiently today at the Sheriff’s Office.
According to Sheriff Joel Brott “We have a great group of people who donate a large amount of time and energy everyday to make sure the courthouse runs smoothly.” The Volunteer Bailiff program began in June 2002 and currently has 26 volunteers. Sheriff Brott stated “The Volunteer Bailiff’s provide invaluable service to the county by:”
- Assisting individuals who are scheduled for a court hearing check in and find the proper courtroom
- Explaining how to fill out Public Defender applications and getting those applications to the proper person for screening
- Escorting individuals from the courtroom to the Court Administrators Office
Sheriff Brott States “Because of the work that these Volunteer Bailiffs do, I am able to free up the Court Security Deputies to concentrate completely on the safety of the Courtroom and the Government Center as a whole.”
The Volunteer Bailiff program donates over 5400 hours per year.
