Are Constables Police Officers or Deputies?

The Texas Constable is enshrined in the Texas Constitution of 1876 (Article 5, Section 18), which provides for the election of a constable in each precinct of a county, and counties may have between one and eight precincts each depending on their population. The term of office for Texas constables is four years. However, when vacancies arise, the commissionerÂ’s court of the respective county has the authority to appoint a replacement to serve out the remaining term.

In Texas, constables and their deputies are fully empowered peace officers with county-wide jurisdiction and thus, may legally exercise their authority in any precinct within their county;[1][2] however, some constablesÂ’ offices limit themselves to providing law enforcement services only to their respective precinct, except in the case of serving civil and criminal process. Constables and their deputies may serve civil process in any precinct in their county and any contiguous county and can serve warrants anywhere in the state. Constables must have a peace officer license within 270 days of taking office, which is the same as every other police officer.

All I know of them is that they are elected officials that drive taxpayer vehicles recklessly with "exempt" license plates. A waste of money...
