Significant Changes to Orders of Protection

Significant changes will take effect next month relating to the way Orders of Protection are delivered for service (See A.R.S. § 13-3602). On January 1, 2020, issuing courts will become responsible for transmitting the defendant’s packet to the appropriate law enforcement agency for service.

When the law goes into effect, your local County Sheriff will no longer be responsible for transmitting data on served orders to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). Instead, the Arizona Supreme Court will act as the central repository for protective orders.

To implement the new law, the Judicial Branch is partnering with the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission (ACJC) to simplify the application process for individuals who seek orders of protection, injunctions against harassment, and injunctions against workplace harassment.
