Private New Jersey officers seek civil payments

Alex brought you stories this week about money being garnished by debt collectors, but what is it like to be on the other side?

The long arm of the law extends through special civil part court officers, the people who deliver levies to banks, garnishments to employers, and eviction notices to renters.

Part bounty hunter, part process server, and part small businessman, these independent contractors are employed by every county Superior Court in New Jersey and sworn in for a lifetime appointment.

Alex caught up with two this week in two different parts of the state to see what a day in the life is like for them.
