Who Are High Court Enforcement Officers?

High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEOs) are personally authorised by the Ministry of Justice to enforce writs of execution. Writs of execution are issued from High Court, the most common being the “writ of control” formerly known as “writ of fieri facias” or “writ of fi fa”.

This is a writ issued for the recovery of money owed and provides for the seizure and sale of the customer’s goods. HCEOs can delegate their powers to enforcement agents in the field who act on their behalf. The HCEO is responsible for the conduct of those individuals acting under these delegated powers.
