What does a Constable do?

Constables are elected officials, and along with their deputies, they attend to the justice courts. Since justice court precinct lines are determined by the number of people living in a certain area, some counties only have one or two constables, while larger counties may have up to twenty-five. Depending on a precinct’s caseload and if they have the approval of their county board of supervisors, a constable may appoint deputies and a staff. In most cases, there are no more than one constable and one deputy in a given precinct.

Constables have the same legal authority as a county sheriff, but generally only work within their own precincts. The primary duties of Arizona constables are:

  • Executing and returning writs of possession or restitution (evictions);
  • Serving orders of protection or orders prohibiting harassment
  • Serving civil and criminal summons and subpoenas
  • Providing judicial security to the justice courts
  • Levying and returning writs of execution (seizing property to satisfy judgments)
  • Storing personal property that has been levied
  • Conducting constable sales of levied property (like sheriff’s sales)
