Thompson attends national conference
Investigator Tammy Thompson, with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department, was selected to represent Mississippi at a National Sex Offender Targeting Center meeting at the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C.
Each state was allowed to send one representative and Thompson was chosen because of her close work with the U.S. Marshals Service, Sex Offender Task Force, Northern District.
Thompson said she was honored to represent Mississippi and Marshall County Sheriff’s office at the workshop, a by-invitation-only event.
“The Marshals saw my hard work and endless effort to give my best,” she said. “I had the pleasure of meeting agents and investigators from each state. The mission was to bring agencies together to network in targeting missing and exploited children.”
The unit was created by DOJ as a result of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006. NSOTC assists federal, state, local and tribal territorial and foreign law enforcement agencies by supplementing and coordinating efforts to identify, prioritize, and target noncompliant sex offenders. The units (operations, intelligence and behavioral analysis units) work together to provide a clearing house for information related to all sex offender investigations.
“I want to thank sheriff Kenny Dickerson, who gave me the opportunity to be part of the criminal investigation team, run by Maj. Kelly McMillen,” Thompson said. “Major McMillen provided the tools and the challenge that I need to be successful in this investigative field.”
Thompson said it is hard work and a sense of purpose that drives investigators like those who work for the sheriff to do what they do.
