Our mission is to provide additional law enforcement presence in the county and to assist and supplement the County Sheriff's Office and the Police Departments.
A Tennessee Constable is an elected position with the full power of arrest and is a state peace officer under Tennessee Code Annotated. While their powers as peace officers are valid statewide, their activities are generally conducted in the county where they are elected. We are officers of the Tennessee Judicial System as prescribed by the State Constitution. We are charged with keeping the peace and with the enforcement of the laws of the state, county, and its cities.
Constables operate at no cost to the citizens of Wilson County. Constables provide their own uniforms, vehicles, fuel, and equipment and stand ready to aid or assist all citizens and/or agencies within the county.
