When a deputy stand-by is required, there may be a charge per hour for the deputy’s time. Example of a standby would be when persons are evicted and a moving company is removing property; a deputy would stand-by to maintain order, but not to actively assist in the moving of the property, etc. Standbys for court ordered no-contacts, when the person needs to collect personal property only (clothing and prescriptions) from a residence is free, but has to be ordered by the court and can not be longer than 10-20 minutes.
