GUEST COLUMN: Constable positions should be reviewed

-A A +A

The antiquated office should require more gun-safety training, accountability for its holders

By The Staff

Earlier this month, Spencer Countians elected a constable for each of the county’s magisterial districts. While we have no reason to question that voters gave due consideration to each candidate’s qualifications, we wonder how many residents actually understand the constable’s role.

In Medieval times, constables helped manage a noble household, royal castle or a fortified town. In Kentucky, the position was established by the 1850 state constitution to carry out minor judicial duties and help small communities maintain civic order.
