Constables are elected commissioned officers. They are TECLOSE certified, and are a part of the county, and sometimes city Sheriff's, and PD offices. In some cases such as Shenendoah, TX. the entire PD is made up of volunteer constables enforcing the law with only a couple elected individuals. Constables must be paid a minimum $1 per year salary, but can make up to more than that of other police, and deputy sheriffs. In many cases they only act in servicing warrants for wanted individuals, or assisting in the local department, but have jurisdiction to do all that any other officer within their department has.
