What is an Indemnity to Sheriff Bond?
An Indemnity to Sheriff Bond is a kind of court bond. Court bonds are a kind of surety bond that are broadly used when pursuing action within a court of law. There are two broad categories of court bonds: judicial bonds and probate/fiduciary bonds. The Indemnity to Sheriff Bond is a judicial bond.
The Indemnity to Sheriff Bond is generally required for law enforcement officers who execute writs of execution. A writ of execution is a judgement order in need of enforcement. If a judge issues a writ of execution, it often falls to local sheriffs to collect funds in order to satisfy the court ruling. The obligee of this bond is the officers involved in the case.
The Indemnity to Sheriff Bond guarantees protection to law enforcement officers who are seizing property for a plaintiff from a defendant should the defendant seek changes or claims against law enforcement. This bond protects law enforcement officers from being sued for seizing property legally. It helps them do their job lawfully and correctly.
Surety1 does not write these bonds for domestic disputes.
