The Office of Constable

"The independent Office of Constable operates within, and is accountable to, the rule of law.

The rule of law is the principle that no one is above the law. Perhaps the most important application of the rule of law is the principle that government authority is legitimately exercised only in accordance with written, publicly disclosed laws adopted and enforced in accordance with established procedural steps.

The principle of the rule of law is intended to be a safeguard against arbitrary governance.

The law must be accessible, intelligible, clear and predictable and must apply equally to all. It must also afford adequate protection of fundamental human rights. It is the independent and impartial holder of the Office of Constable who is tasked with upholding and enforcing the law". (Source: Police Federation of England and Wales May 2008 )
