Will the respondent know this has been filed before the sheriff picks them up?

No. These cases are confidential and the clerk of court will not inform the respondent of the application. The respondent will not know an application for commitment has been filed before the sheriff picks up the respondent unless you tell the respondent. The sheriff will provide the respondent a copy.
