The voters of each Justice of the Peace and Constable Precinct elect the Constable every four years. It is the Constable’s duty to execute and return all process, warrants, summons, and judgment enforcement documents as directed by lawful officials. The Constable may seize and sell real and personal property upon lawful order of a court, returning the proceeds according to law. Constables are Texas Peace Officers and may arrest, with or without a warrant, violators of state penal laws and persons who commit breaches of the peace in their presence.

Constable’s jurisdiction for service of civil process documents is throughout their county as well as every adjacent county. They may serve documents for State, County, and Justice Courts of Texas, as well as process issued by lawful courts of other states. Commissioner’s Court establishes fees for this service. The fees collected are deposited into the general fund of Tarrant County.

The Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education recognizes the special role of the Constables’ offices in the civil court system. The Commission requires the Constable and their deputies to have special civil process training in addition to the standard training required for all Texas peace officers.

The Constables and their deputies are officers of the courts. They provide fair and impartial notification to citizens of court actions that may involve them.
