CONSTABLE BRANDON SCHMOLL
RECEIVES EXEMPLARY SERVICE AWARD

March 18th, 2014
     The Arizona Constables Association which represents the majority of the Constables in the State of Arizona awarded Brandon Schmoll their Exemplary Service Award.

     Constable Schmoll took office January 1, 2010 and has an excellent record of serving the Kyrene Justice Precinct which includes the Ahwatukee and Tempe areas. Constable Schmoll has been actively serving his community, not only in his role as Constable, but also as a Board member for the Ahwatukee Kiwanis Club, President of his H.O.A., and involvement in the Phoenix Block Watch program. Throughout his term as Constable, he has continually been an advocate for the abused or neglected children and animals he comes across during evictions. While doing evictions can be grim, Schmoll says “I follow the Golden Rule and treat people and animals the way I would want to be treated under the same circumstances”.

     Constables are an integral part of the Justice Court system in the State of Arizona. A Constable is an elected official who serves as the Executive Branch of the Courts. In addition to providing judicial security services, Constables are empowered to serve all cases given to them by the Justice of the Peace or other Judges. The process includes service of criminal and civil subpoenas and summonses, writs of restitution (eviction orders), writs of execution (orders to collect judgments), writs of replevin (orders to seize property), orders of protection and injunctions against harassment as well as any other orders from the courts. Constables may also be involved in the sale of seized property, summoning jurors for trials, and posting of liquor license notices.

     Constables who are elected by voters within their judicial precincts are able to provide timely and cost efficient service by working directly with the courts in their local communities to ensure the court's orders are served with justice in an ethical and respectful manner.

CONSTABLE ENRIQUE GÁRFIAS

      An excerpt from phoenix.gov:
Enrique “Henry” Gárfias was an early Phoenix community leader, and the first Hispanic to hold an elected office in the city. Gárfias was born in Mexico, and grew up in California. He came to Phoenix in 1874. Four years later he ran for town constable and won, defeating several Anglo candidates. His duties included serving legal notices and assisting in operations of the peace court. In 1881, Gárfias ran for the position of Phoenix’s first city marshal.
