SHAFTSBURY, Vt. (AP) - Voters in the Vermont town of Shaftsbury will decide whether the town constables will be used as law-enforcement officers.
The Bennington Banner reports the town has been debating for the last several months the pros and cons of using Shaftsbury's two constables for law enforcement, rather than the Bennington County Sheriff's Department, which the town currently contracts with.
Paul McGann and Robert Perry, the town's two constables, say that localizing the police force would benefit the town.
