Process Serving Info
According to the 5th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, no man can have property taken without due process of the law.
Serving legal process follows three elements: identifying the person to which the writ is served; identifying yourself as a RI Constable, and informing the recipient of the general nature of the papers served.
Intregrity of the server is the guiding principle which allows the due process of the law to be intitiated.
