"Supporting Our Community Through Service"
The Constables of Berks County work together with local law enforcement officials in fighting crime. Our Constables are locally elected officials who provide vital services to Berks County and their local community. Services include prisoner transport, warrant service and civil process service. Professional service is achieved through ongoing training administered by the PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency.
