The Constable’s Corner

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, I would first like to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving holiday. Things slowed down slightly in your Precinct 3 Constable’s Office for October in comparison to September. For October I served 48 civil process papers on 66 attempts for service fees totaling $3,100.00 and drove 860 miles in the county for the purposes of civil process service and patrol. Additionally, I assisted other agencies on 9 occasions and performed bailiff duties for 3 separate court functions.
