**Civil File Status Coming Soon**

In an effort for the Placer County Sheriff’s Office Civil Division to better serve our community, we will soon be providing our customers with the option to check their file status online. The “Check Status of Your Service” Portal will contain basic file information to include service details on all files, and account balances / money collection on levy files. Customers will soon have their file information at their fingertips, available to them 24/7. Stay tuned for an updated notice of our GO-Live date.
