Police and Process Servers

Don't Panic.

The police have been called. What do I do?

While rare, there have been circumstances where a resident called the police on a process server. If this happens, ABC Legal recommends staying on-site so that you can give your statement to the authorities when they arrive. Remain confident in your duties and remember that you are there on official business. Do not escalate the situation or continue interaction with whomever called the police. Simply wait to give your statement. The police are well-equipped to deescalate these situations.

I gave my statement, now what?

Our customers require that a report be prepared whenever there is police involvement, so you must give notice to ABC Legal as soon as possible. Send an email to ProcessServerHelp@abclegal.com and provide details surrounding the circumstances of the situation. A member of our compliance team will be in touch with you shortly after that.
