The Bailiffs Section handles the enforcement proceedings commenced by parties in respect of Judgments and Orders of cases that come under the jurisdiction of the State Courts. The bailiffs are empowered under Sections 15 & 16 of the State Courts Act (Chapter 321) to handle the enforcement proceedings.

The bailiffs may, under the authority given to them under Section 16 of the State Courts Act (Chapter 321), enter the house of the judgment 
debtor or premises of a third party to execute and carry into effect all Writs of Execution and Court Orders.  

The usual enforcement filed by parties include a Writ of Seizure and Sale. 

In carrying out the enforcement proceedings, each bailiff of the State Courts is issued distinctive vests and authority passes to aid in identifying them in the course of their work as Court officials.
