The Transport Unit is tasked with the transporting of all court production inmates from counties throughout the state, as well as subjects arrested on Dawson County warrants in other counties. The Transport Unit also assists with the transporting of inmates to and from doctor appointments for medical services that cannot be rendered at the Dawson County Detention Center.
The Civil Process Section of the Dawson County Sheriff's Office is tasked with processing and serving civil papers. Civil papers are routinely received from our local courts. Additionally, civil papers can be received from courts throughout the country. Upon receipt of civil papers, the incoming paperwork is processed and a uniformed officer attempts to deliver the paperwork to a citizen who resides or works within Dawson County.

Security is accomplished through the front door screening station, and a Control Room that maintains constant visual throughout the Center. This is accomplished by camera feeds to the Control Room monitors from all over the building. This surveillance is constant, and when the Government Center is closed, the Master Control of the Detention Center maintains this surveillance.
