What does a Bailiff do?

Bailiffs are considered to be law enforcement officers. They maintain order and security in the courts, protecting the judges and juries and ensuring that everyone in attendance comply with all court rules. Bailiffs check entry and exit points, perform weapons checks and announce the judge. They remove any persons who may be ordered to leave by the judge. If you enjoy the activity of a courtroom and have an interest in working with a diverse range of the public, then you may be well suited for a career as a bailiff.

Bailiffs monitor the trial process carefully and watch out for any disregard for appropriate court behavior and illegal activity. They provide an escort for the jury as they enter and exit the courtroom, and are alert to any possible threats or intimidation. If the jury needs to be accommodated at a hotel, they provide security at the venue. Bailiffs also perform administrative duties such as preparing daily court schedules and bond forms and maintaining court supplies.

What Education and Training Will I Need to Become a Bailiff?

You will need at least a High School Diploma or GED (General Education Degree). Further criminal justice related training at a vocational school or police academy will greatly improve your chances of employment. Some courts prefer to hire candidates with a background in law enforcement or those who have completed of a course in civil rights. A degree in criminal justice can provide the ideal credentials for becoming a bailiff.

Naturally, having a personal history of no criminal convictions is mandatory and a background check will be performed on all candidates. Bailiffs need to develop strong public relations skills and keen attention to detail.

If you are good at making quick decisions, have good judgment and integrity and are interested in the legal system then you will likely find a career as a bailiff highly rewarding.
