The St. Helena Parish Sheriff's Office also employs  Deputy Roy Porter, Sr who carries the title of Civil Process Server.   His function within the department is to serve all civil papers as needed.  There is no picture of him available at this time.

The Civil Department is responsible for filing, serving and enforcing court orders and a variety of other documents issued for garnishment, restraining orders and foreclosures. The primary responsibility for our Civil personnel is the execution of civil processes and mandates of the court. This is accomplished through the service of income and property executions, notices and a variety of other civil/criminal summonses, processes and complaints.  Civil process services must be done in strict compliance with Louisiana Code.  Timelines and accuracy in the service of legal documents, record keeping and returns to the Court are mandated by law.  The service of Civil process is a primary responsibility of the Sheriff as defined in the Louisiana Code.  It is imperative that Civil deputies comply completely and precisely with the laws governing civil process.

Louisiana law requies that the sheriff perform certain tasks surrounding the sale of foreclosed property.  A sheriff sale is the end result of a foreclosure action filed by a private entitiy, usually the person holding the mortgage, after a judgment is obtained against the owner for failure to pay the mortgage. 
Sheriff sales are held on Wednesdays on the court house steps if there is any  forclosed property up for sale.  Information on these sales are listed in the local paper each week.
