Jersey's Constables could all be elected on the same day, under proposals which are being submitted to the States.
The Comite des Connetables has agreed there should be a single election day for all Constables.
They also agree that everyone should stand down in 2008 which means the five Constables who will be elected this year will serve less than 15 months.
The States will also consider extending their term of office to four years.
The Constable acts as the titular head of the honorary police of each of the 12 parishes in the island and the title is thought to date back to the early 16th Century.
