Mensagem:  A "process server" is often a private individual, not a government employee.  Private detectives often do this kind of work when regular work (investigations) is slow.

A "bailiff" is a law enforcement officer charged with enforcing discipline and rules inside the courtroom.  He may serve "bench warrants", orders for arrest usually related to the violation of a court order.  He is more or less the judge's special police force.  His job includes, for example, escorting prisoners into the courtroom, ensuring the safety of the judge, ordering people to stand when  the judge enters or leaves, etc.  Which agency he belongs to depends on the local government.  Until around 1990-1993 in Los Angeles County, for example, bailiffs belonged to the County of Los Angeles Marshall Office.  The office was disbanded and bailiffs became part of the Sheriff Department,
