September 3, 2009

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office - Marshall County Sheriff Ted G. Kamatchus wishes to announce the appointment of Deputy Sheriff Doug Marshall to the position of "Detective/ Investigator" for the Marshall County Sheriff's Office (MCSO).

With the advancement of Deputy Burt Tecklenburg into the position of Chief Deputy, an opening developed under the classification of "Detective/Investigator".

This past month, a 3-person panel conducted an assessment and interviews to determine which current Deputy Sheriff would fit well into the vacant position. Six applications were submitted for consideration. Three of the Deputies, who met all the minimum standards necessary, were called in for interviews.

During the interviews a scoring process was conducted. All three Deputies were subjected to a series of topical questions that targeted specific areas felt important to the position they had applied for. Interview notes and scores were evaluated and discussions ultimately lead to a recommendation by the committee.

Deputy Marshall is a longtime Deputy Sheriff here at the Marshall County Sheriff's Office. Having previously served as a Police Officer on the Marshalltown Police Department, Marshall joined the Sheriff's Office staff in 1993. During his tenure with MCSO, he has worked as a Deputy Sheriff assigned to various specialized tasks, to include, Accident Reconstruction/Investigation, Drug Task Force investigator and as a Field Training Officer for new recruits. Deputy Marshall is a 1991 graduate from Iowa State University where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology.

Sheriff Kamatchus stated, "Over the 16 years he has served Marshall County, Doug has provided our agency with exceptional dedication to his assignments. I truly feel that Deputy Marshall is an excellent selection and I know that he will continue to serve the citizens of Marshall County with that same high level of professional conduct and ability in his new role."
