ATTN: DEPUTY SHERIFFS 

A new state law makes substantial changes to the sheriffs system in Connecticut and requires the Chief Court Administrator to take certain actions. Specifically, Public Act No. 00-99, An Act Reforming the Sheriff System, creates the title of State Marshal for the purpose of providing legal execution and service of process. State Marshals will assume these functions currently performed by Deputy Sheriffs, provided that a referendum abolishing the existing sheriff system is approved by voters in the state election in November 2000. The Act also creates the title of Judicial Marshal, which will assume the functions and duties of Special Deputy Sheriffs if the referendum is approved.

Several parts of the Act were effective on April 28, 2000 and others, as referenced above, are effective on December 1, 2000, pending the outcome of the referendum.

One of the sections that was effective on April 28, 2000 requires that Deputy Sheriffs who are eligible to be appointed as either a State Marshal or a Judicial Marshal notify the Chief Court Administrator of their intention to be appointed to either position on or before June 30, 2000. Persons who were serving as a Deputy Sheriff (1) on May 31, 1995, who had served as a Deputy Sheriff for not less than four years, and who submit an application on or before June 30, 2000, and (2) on April 28, 2000, the effective date of the Act, and who submit an application on or before June 30, 2000, are eligible to be appointed as State Marshals. Additionally, Deputy Sheriffs who were performing court security, prisoner custody or transportation services on April 28, 2000 are eligible to be appointed as either State Marshals or Judicial Marshals, but not both. All of these individuals must notify the Chief Court Administrator of their intentions. Deputy Sheriffs who meet any of the criteria above who have not received a notification form may obtain one by contacting the Judicial Branch Office at External Affairs at (860) 566-8210.
