     Many Constables had General Election opponents for the 2022 election. Congratulations for those that faced challengers and prevailed. A special congratulations to Constable Scott Tipton and Deputy Constable Chris Mueller who won their General Election to become a Justice of the Peace.

In January, we wrapped up our 2023 Winter Conference, held in Tubac, Arizona. The conference was an outstanding success. In this conference we welcomed 21 newly elected Constables.

Because the hotel was a disaster and the food was less than standard we will be looking for a new hotel in the Tucson area. If you have any suggestions, please contact me.

During our business meeting we held an election to fill the CESTB Constable spot from a county with over a million residents. Mahogany Kennedy was elected to a four-year term on the CESTB.

I would like to personally thank everyone who works on the ACA board. The ACA board was very short handed at the conference, thank you for your willingness to go the extra mile.

For Constables who are unable to attend our conferences we offer on-line training courses to allow our Constables to meet their statutorily required 16 training hours per year. I would like to personally thank Kim Rust, from Gila County, for creating and maintaining the online portal.

A huge thank you to Nathan Wallace and Lance Pearce who personally sold over 100 beef raffle tickets each made our scholarship fund a huge success. We will be sending out scholarship applications in the next few weeks. We will offer three $1500 scholarships.

Our next semi-annual training in 2023 will be for all elected and appointed Constables, Deputy Constables and support staff July 17th – July 20th held at the NAU Conference Center. Please save this date and check back later this year for more information and registration forms.

     The Arizona Constables Association, which represents the Constables in the State of Arizona awarded Greg Sharp their Constable of the Year Award.

     Constable Sharp was appointed the Navajo County Constable of Precinct 6 in July of 2017 and was subsequently elected in 2018.

     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.
