Position of constable called into question by state agency

(Continued)

Somerset —

Wood did praise the level of training and preparation constables — as well as any other officers — are likely to get in this area.
“Our state is among the leaders in the country with one of the top five law enforcement academies; that says a lot about Kentucky,” he added. “It’s important to make sure all officers are trained the same and make sure they have the same way of handling situations. 
“We need constables to be the same,” Wood continued. “It’s a safety issue for all involved — the constables themselves and the people they’re out serving.”
