Constables are certified peace officers with the same enforcement powers as other law enforcement. They often participate in criminal investigations, focus on truancy cases, serve as bailiffs for the justice courts, and serve subpoenas and papers necessary to the functioning of both the civil and criminal justice systems, according to the county’s website.
