English term or phrase: a constable

nous sommes dans le Kansas, au début des années 70.
Ledit "constable" porte un pantalon gris, une chemise kaki, une étoile et un chapeau en feutre gris.
Pensez-vous que l'on puisse traduire "constable" par "shérif" ? Je sais qu'il faudrait dire "agent", mais...

Merci d'avance et bonne semaine à tous.
