Constables have the same legal authority as a county sheriff, but generally only work within their own precincts. The primary duties of Arizona constables are:

Executing and returning writs of possession or restitution (evictions);
Serving orders of protection or orders prohibiting harassment;
Serving civil and criminal summons and subpoenas;
Providing judicial security to the justice courts;
Levying and returning writs of execution (seizing property to satisfy judgments);
Storing personal property that has been levied; and
Conducting constable sales of levied property (like sheriff’s sales).
