I understand that Constable badge will be awarded to users who Served as a pro-tem moderator for at least 1 year or through site graduation.

I didn't understand, what does pro-tem moderator means?

From Moderator Pro Tempore article on official blog:

How Moderators are Appointed Pro Tem

About a week into the public beta, we will seek out members who are deeply engaged in the community’s development; members who:

  • Have a reasonably high reputation score to indicate active, consistent participation.
  • Show an interest in their meta’s community-building activities.
  • Lead by example, showing patience and respect for their fellow community members in everything they write.
  • Exhibit those intangible traits discussed in A Theory of Moderation.

Bonus points for:

  • Members with participation in both meta and the parent site (i.e. interest in both community building and expertise in the field).
  • Area 51 participation, social network referrals, or blogging about the site.
  • Members who have already shown an interest or ability to promote their community.

Pro-temp moderators or pro-tempore moderators are those moderators appointed by Stack Exchange when the site is still in beta phase, before elections. Once elections are open, pro-temp moderators stop to exist, and new elected moderators take their place. It could happen pro-temp moderators are elected, but it is not necessary the case.
