Chapter 735 (5/2-202)

Process shall be served by a sheriff, or if the sheriff
is disqualified, by a coroner of some county of the State.
A sheriff of a county with a population of less than 1,000,000
may employ civilian personnel to serve process. In counties
with a population of less than 1,000,000, process may be served,
without special appointment, by a person who is licensed or
registered as a private detective under the Private Detective,
Private Alarm, Private Security, and Locksmith Act of 1993
or by a registered employee of a private detective agency certified
under that Act. A private detective or licensed employee must
supply the sheriff of any county in which he serves process with
a copy of his license or certificate; however, the failure of a person
to supply the copy shall not in any way impair the validity of process
served by the person. The court may, in its discretion upon motion,
order service to be made by a private person over 18 years of age and
not a party to the action. It is not necessary that service be made by a
sheriff or coroner of the county in which service is made. If served or
sought to be served by a sheriff or coroner, he or she shall endorse
his or her return thereon, and if by a private person the return shall be by affidavit.


(a-5) Upon motion and in its discretion, the court may appoint as a special
process server a private detective agency certified under the Private Detective,
Private Alarm, Private Security, and Locksmith Act of 1993. Under the
appointment, any employee of the private detective agency who is registered
under that Act may serve the process. The motion and the order of
appointment must contain the number of the certificate issued to the private
detective agency by the Department of Professional Regulation under the
Private Detective, Private Alarm, Private Security, and Locksmith Act of 1993.
