Inaugural Marshall County Sheriff’s Citizen Academy

The Sheriff’s Citizen Academy will provide attendees a look inside the Marshall County Sheriff's Office, which is the most multi-faceted law enforcement agency in our field.  During the course of ten weeks, citizens will be introduced to a large variety of topics throughout the several divisions of the Office.
