What we think: Justice report agrees that constables must go

-A A +A

We long have held that constables are irrelevant. Now a new state report agrees.

A study completed last week by state Department of Criminal Justice has come to a conclusion we addressed two years ago: We no longer need constables as part of the law enforcement structure.

We agreed in 2010 when Shelby County Magistrate Michael Riggs, a former member of the law enforcement community, raised the question to Shelby County Fiscal Court about these elected members of the police community, and we encouraged Mr. Riggs and his fellow magistrates to move toward eliminating these positions.
