Tennessee constables aren't salaried, but they can make money » Knoxville News Sentinel
Constables are elected officials who operate as officers at no cost to the county. But they get a kickback from the state for writing citations, making arrests and serving court summonses. The state-based fees for each service are $1 per citation, $40 per arrest and $20 per summons. The money comes out of court costs paid by a defendant or party.
What could possibly go wrong with this creative privatization scheme, that enlists the wonderful power of The Market to solve yet another problem?
