The Marshall Police Department has established an Internal Affairs Section.

The Internal Affairs Section is designed to be a fact finding entity and its purpose is three-fold:

  • Protection of the Public -The Public has the right to receive fair, efficient and impartial law enforcement. Any misconduct by department personnel must first be detected, then thoroughly investigated and finally, properly adjudicated to assure the maintenance of these qualities.
  •  Protection of the Department - The department is often evaluated and judged by the conduct of its individual employees. It is imperative that the whole organization not be criticized because of the misconduct of a few. An informed public must have confidence that its police department honestly and fairly investigates and adjudicates all allegations of misconduct against its employees.
  • Protection of the Employee - Employees must be protected against false or misinformed allegations of misconduct. This can only be accomplished through a consistently thorough investigative process.

The Internal Affairs Section will be overseen by Lt. Glen Stone. Any concerns orcomplainants against the Marshall Police Department or its employees should be directed to Lt. Stone at (903) 935-4525.
