i want to ask something again that didn't get answered. What is the position in Kentucky of the constable? Is it just an office mandated by our old-style state constitution? What sort of police powers do they have? What is their pay rate? Their fiscal and/or equippage resources? Should we run for it, or from it? WTF?

I picked this up after a little digging. It should help some.

Gary Cordner, a professor of police studies at the Eastern Kentucky University College of Justice and Safety, said constables can be important in small rural Kentucky counties where sheriff's departments typically are short staffed.

The position is a holdover from an earlier legal system when justices of the peace or local magistrates held judicial authority in Kentucky counties.

"Its continuation probably reflects that constables still fill a gap in law enforcement in some counties," Cordner said.
