The Marshall County Reserve Deputy Program is a group of dedicated individuals who volunteer their time and services to help the Sheriff's Office when needed. 

Reserve Deputies are required to receive continuous training and qualify with their service weapon. Our reserves work directly with Captain Barry Priest at the direction of Sheriff Sims and assist in many capacities that include: patrol with other full time deputies, prisoner transport, courtroom security, special events and functions, and natural disasters. We respect these dedicated individuals and appreciate the assets they bring to the community and to our team.
