Absolutely ridiculous what these "part time security" guards/police officers charge bars to be security. You guys are bigger crooks then all the drunks in Marion county.

175 dolars sounds cheap compared to some jerk trashing your place,starting fights,and possibly killing someone.All of wich lead to loss of profit and possibly getting your business shut down.

a deputy constable has their own IC for their powers. they do not fall under the sheriff's dept or the special deputy program. so please stop saying that!

It's a shame what happened with Lawrence that night. I knew him and he's a great guy. I haven't talked to him since he got out of jail.

Lawrence was JUST ABOUT to be hired by the federal government (having passed all the background checks and such) as a law enforcement officer when he got drunk and all this happened.

This was NOT the Lawrence that I knew, and even talked to him while regularly when he was going through the Special Deputy Academy while I was attending the Detective school. I even went to a gathering at his house once, and I didn't see him consume that much alcohol.

But, he made a mistake and now he's going to have to pay for it by never being a LEO again for the rest of his life.

If he's lucky, he MIGHT be able to the military.

But Lawrence was a good, professional man who made a stupid (and HUGE) mistake one night. He's not the 'rent a cop' or 'stupid security guard' that some people on this post made him out to be. He was on the verge of going federal law enforcement, and no 'moron' would have made it as far as he did.

And yes, I am an ACTUAL police officer, and not a special deputy or anything like that.

That was supposed to be 'MIGHT be able to STAY in the military.'

Once again someone saying that public safety should be limited on what jobs they can do on their days off. Where does it end? Public safety is so limited as to what they can do with their free time as it is. Whether your in uniform or not you are still judged by your job title.

Saw on the news last night that he lost all of his jobs and his right to get to be a cop. All without a trial, or as far as I can tell, even a hearing. Typical Indiana Justice. It should be illegal for a cop to be a security guard at a bar anyway. Too big of a chance for conflict of interest. Ok to moonlight, just get a job in another area of employment. It will make the clock move faster, anyway, not to have to go from one job doing the same thing at the next job.

Lets see now, we have State Police, City Police, and also Township Police. HUH? Why, in 2008, do we still pay for Constables? And don't tell me IMPD can't handle it!! I have too many friends that are good officers.

Indiana Code 33-34-6-4 requires townships to elect constables every 4 years. They serve many purposes, but mainly handle civil papers. The pay comes out of civil process fees, not taxes. The only question that keeps coming up, is whether they should still have full police arrest powers to handle civil paperwork. IMPD can handle it, but having a fully trained PO deliver paperwork is stupid. Do like other counties and hire civil process servers for much less money.

I see where you are all going with this... But move on! Special deputies, many marshals, constables, investigators for prosecutors, all have political priveleges. They are not going away, SO GET USED TO IT!!

Hello everyone, do you have a personal relationship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ? The Son of God. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.- John 3:16

You are correct on the lines of public safety.
A constable has special police powers.
These are limited to an area of employment
and much more limited than a IMPD officer.
They are like BARNEY FIFE, can arrest you for obvious crimes, but may/may not have a gun.

. They make several hundred thousand per year from taxes collected and their dirty deeds and graft thru the township court.
