East Windsor Selectmen to Discuss IDs for Constables Again

Some constables have asked for the identification so they can pursue jobs such as serving legal papers.


East Windsor selectmen are expected Tuesday to again discuss which elected officials are and should be carrying town identification badges.

The discussion is an outgrowth of a from some town constables who want official identification from the town. They want the IDs so they can pursue jobs such as serving legal papers.

Selectmen asked the constables to provide them with information about what training they need to be process servers. The town’s insurance carrier CIRMA asked for the information for liability reasons.

The town’s charter doesn’t outline specific duties for the seven elected constables, but state statutes to allow them to do things such as serve process papers for attorneys.

The board also asked for information about whether other similar-sized communities in Connecticut issue IDs to elected officials. The response was mixed according to a memo from the Connecticut Council of Municipalities.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. in town hall.
