From 1952-1959, Odule Nolette was the town constable for Girouxville. His duties included attending public functions: weddings, social events, public meetings, and events that served alcohol. He was there to keep the peace. He had to wear his police uniform while on duty. He also had the responsibility of supervising the village children and enforcing the curfew. After being the town cop for about a year the town council decided that he should own a gun in case trouble should erupt and he would need to defend himself. Odule did not agree with this decision, believing if he needed backup he could simply call McLennan. However, Odule had to abide by the decision of the town council.
