Sheriff bailiffs assigned other jobs

VICTORVILLE • Sheriff bailiffs who normally police the courts everyday to assure order take on a different task one day a month as they assist the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department with warrant sweeps, use-of-force training in the courtroom and even do sex offender compliance checks.

The 140 San Bernardino County Deputy Sheriffs assigned as bailiffs throughout the county are given different duties on the third Wednesday of every month when the superior courts are closed  due to budget cuts.

“The deputies will network with all the divisions in the department to help out and can be assigned to jail duty or special training,” said Lt. Todd Patterson, Executive Officer of Court Services.
