Cost Efficiency

PA State Constables are likely the most cost effective and efficient law enforcement entities in the state as they draw no salary from the taxpayer. Court related duties are paid via a set fee schedule outlined by state law, these court costs are borne by the defendant in criminal matters or the plaintiff in civil matters. The Constable commonly receives taxpayer funds for court related functions indirectly only in the instance that the Constable is commanded by the court to perform service on an indigent person, in which case the county may pay the appropriate fee bill compensation as outlined by state law.

Constables must purchase their own uniforms, firearms, vehicles, fuel, bond, professional liability insurance, accessories, office supplies, etc … entirely at their own expense.

Constables may offer other services such as peacekeeping, local ordinance enforcement, traffic control and direction, and more on a voluntary or negotiated fee basis.
