A Message from
Sheriff D.T. Marshall
I was elected as the Sheriff of Montgomery County in November of 1998 and took Office in January of 1999. I promised the citizens of Montgomery County that I would make the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office one of the best in the State and I have worked very hard at keeping that promise. Our Deputies are very highly-trained and have some of the best equipment available to law enforcement issued to them. A modern, web-based, computer system is now up and running allowing the Deputies to have computers in their vehicles, enabling them to better enforce the laws of the State of Alabama and helping them better serve the citizens of Montgomery County.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of Chief Deputy Derrick Cunningham and several of my senior staff, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is heavily involved in the community. We go into the County schools with the D.A.R.E. program, we implemented Project Life Saver, to help people suffering with memory impairments, we run a summer camp every year, spending a weekend with children 9 to 11 years old, we have a community day in the county to help the citizens learn about the Sheriff’s Office and the services available to them, we sponsor a day of skating with kids every year, we go into the junior high and high schools with a DUI education program, we sponsor a fishing day for kids and another fishing day for the elderly, and we attend neighborhood watch and community meetings. These are just some of the many programs that the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office are involved with in our community.
I am also working closely with the Montgomery County Commission to help bring every service possible to our citizens. The County Commission provides the funding for the Sheriff’s Office and they are an integral part of the Sheriff's Office in what we are allowed to do in Montgomery County. We are very lucky to have five Commissioners who have a deep and lasting commitment to our citizens and I am proud to be able to serve beside them in Montgomery County.
The Fire and Rescue Volunteers in the County are also a very important part of Montgomery County. These men and women are there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for the citizens of Montgomery County in their times of emergency and need. These are a dedicated group of citizens who dedicate every available moment to looking out for his/her neighbors and I have grown to admire them since being elected as Sheriff. They make Montgomery County a much safer place to live and I can’t say enough about their dedication and devotion to our citizens.
