Carter County Constables In Communications Controversy With Sheriff’s Department

Constables in Carter County are in a literal communications controversy with the Carter County Sheriff’s Department. The constables, who are elected have been told by the sheriff’s department they will no longer be allowed to use the department’s radio system. Furthermore, they will no longer be allowed to use the departments computer system or radio frequencies. Constables can however, reapply for those privileges if they meet certain qualifications and training at their own cost.
