The Arizona Constables Association, which represents the majority of the constables in the state, awarded Brandon Schmoll with the Exemplary Service Award.
Constable Schmoll took office Jan. 1, 2010 and has an excellent record of serving the Kyrene Justice Precinct, which includes the Ahwatukee and Tempe areas. Schmoll is also a board member for the Ahwatukee Kiwanis Club, president of his homeowners association, and is involved in the Phoenix Block Watch program. Throughout his term as constable he has continually been an advocate for the abused or neglected children and animals he comes across during evictions.
Constables are an integral part of the Justice Court system in the state of Arizona. A constable is an elected official who serves as the executive branch of the courts. In addition to providing judicial security services, constables are empowered to serve all cases given to them by the Justice of the Peace or other judges. The process includes service of criminal and civil subpoenas and summonses, writs of restitution (eviction orders), writs of execution (orders to collect judgments), writs of replevin (orders to seize property), orders of protection and injunctions against harassment as well as any other orders from the courts. Constables may also be involved in the sale of seized property, summoning jurors for trials, and posting of liquor license notices.
Constables who are elected by voters within their judicial precincts are able to provide timely and cost efficient service by working directly with the courts in their local communities to ensure the court’s orders are served with justice in an ethical and respectful manner.
