I don't fault him for buying his own uniform. From what I understand, they aren't provided any equipment (even a car), and I don't think they make anything either. I believe they earn their money by moon lighting as a security and serving papers for the courts. That said, I think they have full police powers.
They earn $100 per month and have limited police powers, they can write traffic citations and serve warrents but that's about it.
Peace officers must enforce all truck weight limit and size laws (KRS 189.223). They must seize any automobile transporting alcoholic beverages in dry territory and make all necessary arrests
That's even worse, he's a cop with little or no real training AND a criminal record.

This guy scares me, he seems like a cop wannabe with some actual authority (and maybe an itchy trigger finger).
He admitted he bought his own "police" uniform (which fits his fat *** like a glove :lol
Just what does a Louisville constable do anyway? I remember a few years ago the metro council here in Louisville voted down a motion to allow them to use siren and lights.
There is no requirement for Sheriffs to complete any police training either. There are plenty of sheriffs and former sheriffs in this state who's only experience for the office was being a member of the good ole' boys club. I have over the last several years heard cries to abolish the constables office from the state constitution or remove some of their statutory powers. But I've never heard anyone say lets remove the sheriffs powers. The legal difference between the two offices is the Sheriff has to collect taxes. Now there are some more practical differences, there are 120 sheriffs in Kentucky vs. a few hundred constables. As far as Louisville Metro wanting to pass an ordinance dictating what a constable can or cant wear is a bunch of garbage. I don't think it should be up to a city to tell a county constitutional officer what he can or can't do. We need cities, counties, states, and the feds to keep their paws out of most things.That's even worse, he's a cop with little or no real training AND a criminal record.

No the key is for purpose of resale or transfer. An example would be if you go to Montgomery County and buy 20 cases of a particular brand of beer, for your own consumption, and bring them back to Bath County there is no problem. Now if you had for instance, 20 cases of beer, 5 of one brand, 5 of another, etc. then someone might suspect you might bs transporting for purpose of resale or transfer.So, technically speaking, I'm in violation of the law, when I drive to, say, Montgomery Co. to buy beer, daiquiris, or wine, and bring it home to Bath Co., because Bath is a "dry county"?
I'd hate to see if my home brewing of beer; compliant with federal laws, and state laws; could also be seen as illegal in a dry county through that statue when I buy ingrediants... Hmm.
