Constables provide professional law enforcement to their communities at no expense to the county taxpayer.
They patrol roads, round up law violators, serve civil process, work to assist other law enforcement and directly confront dangerous situations, preventing the endangerment and preserving the welfare of law-abiding citizens.
Constables across the state will be honored Nov. 3 at 10 a.m. with the first-ever Constable Appreciation Day in Wilson Park, located in Union County on Highway 33, according to Chad Faulkner, vice president of the Tennessee Constable Council.
The Constable Appreciation Day will include Kid Fun Inflatable Park and activities; country, gospel and bluegrass music; tailgate party; hotdogs and barbecue, and educational booths and activities provided by law enforcement and safety groups. A special surprise guest will also be on hand to take the stage and a ceremony will honor constables.
