A new report calls for the abolishment of Constables in Kentucky
A recent report by Ky. law enforcement officials calls for the abolishment of the office of Constable because it has "outlived" its usefulness and is no longer considered essential. The recommendation was made by the Kentucky Law Enforcement Council on Thursday. A study stated that Constables currently performed only one quarter of one percent of all law enforcement work in Kentucky, and most had little or no training for the job. A Justice Cabinet spokesman explained that problems have developed with some Constables around Kentucky.
