Dallas County Sheriff
Resource Development Division – Personnel Section
Bailiffs provide daily security to the courts in four different locations, including auxiliary courtrooms for visiting judges. Bailiffs are generally responsible for security, the transportation of prisoners, the execution of warrants and serving of civil papers. Bailiff duties are conducted with full-time sheriff’s deputies, as well as a bailiff pool of part-time employees who can be assigned as needed to the courts. Bailiff tasks are performed for the Justice of the Peace courts which belong to the Constable Offices.
A candidate may be considered at a lower salary grade with a combination of TCLEOSE certification, education, and/or work experience that equates to two years. These minimum qualifications are required prior to the candidate taking the written entry level law enforcement examination.
Please note that bailiff job postings are listed as a “Deputy Constable I” position.
