The office of constable, which is established by Kentucky’s state constitution, is again under scrutiny.  Earlier attempts to eliminate the office have failed.  However, critics this year are taking a different approach.

Kentucky lawmakers who advocate abolishing the office of constable are emboldened by a new report from the state justice cabinet calling for just that. Constables have the same law enforcement powers as county sheriffs, but without the specific duties. Like sheriffs, the position is outlined in the constitution. For years, lawmakers have tried to pass a constitutional amendment to end the office. The report said constables have little law enforcement purpose in Kentucky, accounting for .20 of recorded law enforcement in the state.
