Citizen Survey To Be Conducted

December 10, 2012

Marshall County - Marshall County Sheriff's Office announced today that on December 17th & 18th 2012, during the evening hours, members of the Marshall County Sheriff's Reserves will be conducting a survey of Marshall County citizens on their opinions of the Marshall County Sheriff's Office.

The Sheriff's Office recently completed an on-site inspection by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). As a part of this accreditation process, the Sheriff's Office Reserves will conduct the survey which will assist the Marshall County Sheriff's Office in becoming a better agency through the direct input of the citizens of Marshall County.

The citizen survey is a standard for accreditation that is required to be completed every three years. The survey will consist of 10 questions and will cover overall agency performance, overall competence of agency employees, officer's attitudes and behavior towards citizens, concern over safety and security within Marshall County and suggestions for agency improvement.

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office encourages citizens to complete the survey if they are called. If you are not contacted directly before the 17th, citizens are encouraged to complete a survey online at Follow the link under Citizen's Survey located on the left side of the home page. Due to the possibility of scams, it is suggested that if you feel uncomfortable in talking to the deputy, and you want to be certain to whom you are speaking, hang-up and then contact that reserve deputy at the Sheriff's Office, where the survey is operating from. (You may call 641-754-6380 to confirm if you have concerns.)
