     In August of 2019 the ACA participated in the '3rd Annual Doc Holli-days' parade, and in October we participated in the '90th Annual Helldorado Days' parade, both in Tombstone, Arizona. We have several other parades we are planning for as well.

     We will also be spear heading the 'Where's the Baby' campaign, to raise awareness about leaving infants in the car unattended.

     We've wrapped up our 2020 Winter Conference, held at the Tubac Golf Resort & Spa!! We had several amazing classes, including 'Distracted Driving' (Train the Trainer), Recognizing Dog and Cock Fighting, Narcan training, Building Clearing, and many others. We were also able to offer judgment shoots to our members. We had over 70 attendees, consisting of sheriff's office personnel, constables, deputy constables, and constable support staff!!

     During our business meeting at the Tubac Conference, we held elections for our board members. I am proud to announce that Constables Phyllis Romo (Navajo County) and Lenny McCloskey (Maricopa County) were re-elected as at-large members, and were joined by newly elected Constables Melissa Wirthlin (Cochise County) and Rick Remender (Coconino County); Constable Scott Blake (Maricopa County) was re-elected as Vice President, Constable Suzanne Smith (Navajo County) was re-elected as Secretary, and Constable Michael Stevenson (Pima County) was re-elected as Treasurer. I was re-elected as President.

     Our next training conference will be held in Flagstaff, from July 21st through July 23rd, 2020. Save the date, and check back later this year for the registration forms.

Arizona Constables Association


January 23rd, 2020
     The Arizona Constables Association, which represents the majority of the Constables in the State of Arizona awarded Tony McDaniel their Constable of the Year Award.

     Constable McDaniel was originally appointed by the Gila County Board of Supervisors in 2016 and was subsequently elected in 2018 for the Payson Justice Precinct.

     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 peace officer of the court. 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, injunctions against harassment, and warrants 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.


Welcome to the Arizona Constables Association web site. This site has been developed to assist you with learning more about this elected position.

Did you know that the job of a Constable varies depending on the county he or she works in?

Constables have been a part of Arizona since the days of the Wild West. On our About page, the constable's rich history will take you on a journey from territorial days to present times.

Although the Ethics, Standards and Training Board is a separate entity from the Association, several association members serve on the Ethics, Standards and Training Board, which oversees the conduct of Arizona's Constables. For more information about the board, browse over to our Ethics, Standards and Training Board page.

Under the Members Section you will find a listing of the current members of the Association and their biographical information.

We hope you enjoy this site and if you have any further need to contact a board member, please see the Board Members page.
