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.
