Message from the Chief

On behalf of the men and women of the Marshall Police Department, I want to welcome you to our website. This page is but one of the many opportunities we have to help assure that we are effectively connecting with the citizens we serve. I believe that good communication is vital for a successful community, and I will ensure that our department constantly works to strengthen the communication and relationships between the community and its police department. We invite you to become involved with the Marshall Police Department because no law enforcement agency can solve crime or quality of life issues alone.

I will work to ensure that the Marshall Police Department builds a strong partnership between our community and our law enforcement partners to constantly strive to make our community safer. We look forward to working with you.

I am proud of the dedicated employees of the Marshall Police Department and I am excited about serving with you as your Chief of Police.

Marshall Police Video Registration Program 

The video registration program allows residents and business owners to voluntarily register the fact that they have installed video surveillance systems at their home or business. When there have been serious crimes in the past, officers have had to go door-to-door in the area asking about camera systems. Through the Marshall Police Video Registration Program, detectives will now be able to quickly determine where those systems are located and contact the homeowner or business representative to ask them to review their video.

 Video registration is voluntary and there is no cost associated with registration. Participants in the program can retract their registration at any time. An individual's personal information will be kept confidential by the Marshall Police Department, subject to disclosure per court order. 

To register your camera system please fill out the MPD Video Registration Form
