The Newly Elected Constables program is provided to all elected or appointed Constables within the first two years of taking office to promote a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities of these unique law enforcement agencies. The state-mandated program presents an overview of policies and procedures for civil processing, warrant execution, bailiff services, patrol, investigation, and security and offers valuable leadership, management and networking opportunities to aid in operating an effective agency.
