Your order will be sent to the Tucson Police Department, which has chosen to use Nationwide Legal- a process service agency- to serve Domestic Violence Orders of Protection. Police officers in the City of Tucson do not serve these orders.
If you have new information about the defendant’s whereabouts, please call Nationwide Legal at 520-288-8939 to inform the process servers, because under ARS§13-3602.I, a law enforcement agency or other authorized agency has a continuing duty to attempt service of a Domestic Violence Order of Protection.
Tucson Police Department’s current policy is to serve Domestic Violence Orders of Protection only if there is a call for service about an ongoing crime occurring. They will not respond to serve a Domestic Violence Order of Protection without additional circumstances requiring them to respond to a location. TPD uses Nationwide Legal and they should be called (520-288-8939) if you need your Domestic Violence Order of Protection served. This is the Tucson Police Department’s policy, not the policy of Tucson City Court.
If you have been given a “police packet” with your Domestic Violence Order of Protection, you can give it to a police officer who responds to your location on a service call and ask them to serve the order.
