KCSO stops serving municipal probate court orders
Placeholder Image
Starting today, Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies are no longer serving Kershaw County Probate Court orders of detention for mental health evaluations and commitments within the municipal limits of Camden, Elgin and Bethune. While deputies will continue to handle mental health probate court orders, the change leaves those municipalities’ police departments to handle such matters within their jurisdictions. Camden City Council didn’t appear happy with Sheriff Jim Matthews’ decision when they learned about it during a work session Thursday.
