What does a county constable do?


In Kentucky, the position of Constable was established in the 1850 Constitution. The present Constitution requires the election of one constable in each justice of the peace (known as magistrate) district.

The Constable has the authority to enforce both traffic laws and Kentucky criminal laws. They may execute warrants, summonses, subpoenas, attachments, notes, rules & orders of the court in all criminal, penal & civil cases (KRS 70.350). Kentucky's Constitution, Section 101, requires constables to possess the same qualification as the sheriffs & may exercise jurisdiction in any part of the county. (OAG 62-115 & 40-776).

According to rulings by the state Attorney General's office, an elected Constable can not be barred from working in the city limits by a mayor, chief of police or by the city council but he/she must keep his office in the district which he/she is elected. Constables are a "fees paid" officer of the court. Constables are entitled to receive fees for all citations that they write & warrants they serve.

Kentucky's Constitution states that, "Constables shall possess the same qualifications as Sheriffs and their jurisdiction shall be co-extensive with the counties in which they reside. For more about county constables in Kentucky, contact the Kentucky Constables Association (click on the link).
