Description: The history and exploits of constables, a large group of peace officers, have remained largely untold. Constables traces in some detail the history of Texas constables, from January 1823 when the first law enforcement officers, two constables, were appointed in Stephen F. Austin's colony, to the present day. In addition, a brief history of the origin of the office in medieval France and England and its role in colonial America is given in an appendix.

The book examines the changing duties of the office of constable, compares the role of urban and rural constables, and documents the position the office has in local government as well as law enforcement.
