SERVICE AS JUSTICE OF THE PEACE IN ONE
COUNTY AND AS RESERVE DEPUTY SHERIFF
IN ANOTHER

Opinion NO. 149 (1992)

ANSWER: No. The Committee concludes that service by a Justice of the Peace as a law enforcement officer would be inconsistent with the provisions of Canons 1 and 2 concerning the impartiality and independence of the judicial.
