Bailiff

Bailiffs and enforcement officers are authorised by the courts to exercise certain powers.

Bailiffs and enforcement officers are people authorised to remove and sell possessions.  The purpose of so doing is in order to pay the money a debtor owes to a person or an organisation.

They may also conduct evictions, and arrest people.

A bailiff is also employed to serve (deliver) court documents on people.

The term is also used to describe a court official, sometimes a deputy sheriff, who keeps order in the courtroom and handles various errands for the judge and clerk
