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.
The Citizen Academy is designed to give attendees a broad overview of the numerous functions entrusted by the Iowa Code to the Office of Sheriff. While this training session is not designed to train citizens as a law enforcement officer, attendees will have a better understanding of what a career in law enforcement entails.
