Resident Troopers are active State Troopers, employed by the Connecticut State Police. They are not retired.
Correct. But if you read closely I said “Constables operate under the towns resident trooper” the Resident Troopers are the Constables “Supervisors” per say.

You stated : "Constables operate under the town’s resident trooper. They are usually retired troopers, but are POST certified law enforcement officers."

No Resident Trooper is a retired Trooper. All Resident Troopers are active Connecticut State Police Troopers.

If you mean Constables being retired State Troopers ... East Lyme had 20+ "constables" when they were a resident service, only one was prior CSP. Montville, when they were a resident service, had 20+ "constables", including detectives, none were prior CSP. The same for Ledyard.
All of which have relatively recently become independent police departments.

Some towns do have a Constable service, such as Lyme and Canterbury, but they are not law enforcement. They do not serve under the Resident Trooper.

A few weeks ago i think 8-4 Killingworth's ambulance checked in. It seemed to like who answered was surprised
When they do the Coordinator Roll Call, it's by County then Coordinator, Litchfield County (8) is the last county, and I am have been the last # on the list (98). They open the roll call up to any other users, which is a good thing, so in practice I am not the last guy who answers anymore.. lol

When DEMHS opens it up for the statewide test, I am often last, as I test my department portables when they switch over to "anyone not on the list"
When does DEMHS conduct their testing in your region?

I was a constable in Bolton under Troop K jurisdiction for 17 years, my number was KC 51, we worked under a resident state trooper who had their own state police ID number. We would be scheduled when the resident trooper was not on duty, and have the patrolling troopers as back ups

I don't believe Bolton has had Constables in a while, unless I am mistaken.

Bolton has 1 or two CSP, no constables, I'm in the area often

0034 town location code in your handle i see, you bring back memories

I remember when Bolton had constables & the resident CSP Was Bob P 444

I ran into him awhile ago, Still the same, real nice guy

Never actually met any of the resident troopers for my home town. Heard through the grapevine that the previous 2 were not the nicest people in the world but the current one is rumored to be pretty cool, I'd like to meet him some day.

I am somewhat curious to know how long Barkhamsted has been a resident trooper town and if we ever had constables. Ty probably knows something ;)

Far back as I know there has been a resident trooper.
The only constable is the school resource officer who was hired sometime after sandy hook.
Brett the current resident is a very nice guy
