SAN AUGUSTINE, TX (KTRE) - If you're looking for the opportunity to work in law enforcement, The San Augustine County judicial system is looking to hire a new constable.

Ponder said this particular constable position will serve on Thursdays.

To apply for the position or be considered, contact County Judge Johnson's office at (936) 275-2762.
