Rocky Adamson served as the local Constable in Dayton, Nevada for over eleven years. He was known for his gentlemanly conduct in settling disputes and rarely had to make an arrest.


His office was a small canvas tent on a skid that could be loaded on a flatbed truck and moved from one area to another where he served papers and enforced the law in the traditional way it had been done for a hundred years before him.


However, after Rocky retired, the county officials abolished the office of the Constable. You can also spot Rocky in the Redeye Express, where he appears as the first figure on the left.
