I found this at Wikipedia:Um...constables as in the Brits with goofy hats and no guns?
Seriously, how would this affect anyone?
In Georgia, state law permits counties to establish constables as officers appointed by the Chief Magistrate Judge of the county's Magistrate Court, who serve at the pleasure of the Chief Magistrate.
The powers and duties of constables include: attending all regular sessions of Magistrate Court; collecting and paying money owed to the court; executing and returning all warrants, summonses, executions, and other processes directed to them by the magistrate court; and other duties. However, unlike police officers and sheriffs, constables can only make arrests with a warrant or at the direction of and in the presence of a judge.
Georgia code Title 15, Chapter 10, Sections 100 through 104 defines the roles, powers, and duties of constables.
Oops, your right.GAGunOwner said:On the "Current Bills" tab it says that if HB 915 passed this constables law wouldn't be needed.
Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't these constables still have to get their special law to be able to carry in public K-12 schools?
