Sheriff Kamatchus said, "Verification by the team that the Marshall County Sheriff's Office meets the Commission's state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to maintain accreditation that includes internationally recognized professional standards for excellence in law enforcement services. This is a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence." The Marshall County Sheriff's Office was first accredited in 1999 and has maintained that status since.

The C.A.L.E.A. assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar, but out-of-state agencies. The assessors will review written materials, interview employees, and visit offices and other places where standards compliance can be witnessed.

  • Team Member: Dennis Nelson, Milton Police Department Canton, GA

As part of the on-site assessment process, agency employees and members of the public are invited to offer comments through a public information call-in session Monday, September 12, 2011, between 3:00 PM and 5:00 PM. Interested citizens should call (641) 754-6377 x4138 to participate. Telephone comments are limited to ten minutes, and must address the agency's ability to comply with C.A.L.E.A.'s standards. For more information about C.A.L.E.A.'s standards, please contact Marshall County Sheriff's Accreditation Manager, Chief Deputy Burt Tecklenburg at (641) 754-6380, or email him at We welcome any comments or information you may wish to share with the assessors during this process.

The session will be conducted at the Marshall County Sheriff's Office 3rd Floor Meeting Room. The Sheriff's Office is located at 2369 Jessup Ave.

Chief Deputy Tecklenburg stated, "Once the Commission's assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then review the report and decide if the agency is to be granted re-accredited status."

Accreditation is for three years, during which the agency must submit annual reports attesting continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.
