Constables' Education and Training Board

The Commission on Crime and Delinquency, through its Bureau of Training Services, trains and certifies the Commonwealth's elected and appointed constables and deputy constables.  Training consists of basic and firearms education, which leads to certification to perform judicial duties and receive payment.  Annual in-service training is required to maintain certification.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: To mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania, Commonwealth employees were directed to telework starting Monday, March 16, 2020 for an indefinite time period.  Notices will be posted as to when staff are back in the office.
