CONSTABLE DENNIS DOWLING
RECEIVES 2017 CONSTABLE OF THE YEAR AWARD

January 24th, 2018
     The Arizona Constables Association, which represents the majority of the Constables in the State of Arizona awarded Dennis Dowling their Constable of the Year Award.

     Constable Dowling took office January 1st, 2015 and has an excellent record of serving the Bagdad-Yarnell Justice Precinct. Constable Dowling has been actively serving his community, not only in his role as Constable, but also as a Chairman for the Yavapai County 4H/FFA EXPO committee, general member of the ACA executive board, member of the Yavapai County Weaver Mountain Chamber of Commerce, and as a Yavapai GOP Precinct Captain and State Committeeman. Throughout his term as Constable, he has continually sought was to improve his office and save taxpayer money.

     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.
