Rhode Island State Constable Manual

    This manual was given to me by the Rhode Island District Court when I started training to become a limited power constable. The information within this manual assisted me in passing the constable examination given after the 90 days of training.

    This manual may be referenced by Rhode Island Constables to insure proper service.

    The manual's cover page has two name enscribed
    Albert E. Derobbio and Joseph P. Ippolito, ESQ.
