U.S. Marshals Service presents award to sheriff’s office, recognizes Thompson
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department was recently honored by the United States Marshals Service for the work of investigator Tammy Thompson.
The award recognizes her assisting the Marshals Service Sex Offender Task Force for the Northern Judicial District of Mississippi.
On February 8, Dennis Erby, United States marshal for the Northern District, visited the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department and presented a United States Treasury check in the amount of $3,203.40. The funds are to be used by the Investigations Division to assist in purchasing additional equipment for future investigations.
Erby complimented Investigator Thompson for her hard work and dedication in dealing with sex offenders, and for her cooperative spirit and pleasant attitude in working with and assisting deputy United States marshals in enforcing federal and state laws concerning sex offenders.
Sheriff Kenny Dickerson thanked Erby for the funds and assured him the money would be put to good use and spent for equipment to further the good work of the Investigations Division. Sheriff Dickerson also thanked Erby for his comments regarding Investigator Thompson and said he has likewise seen these same qualities in her since she was employed in October 2009 to handle sex crime investigations with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department.
Sheriff Dickerson further commended the United States Marshals Service for all the federal agency has done to assist the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department. Both the Marshals Service office for the Northern District in Oxford and the Oxford office of the Gulf States Regional Fugitive Task Force of the United States Marshals Service have always generously rendered valuable assistance in innumerable ways to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department.
Many criminals who would otherwise be out among society have been brought to justice, thanks to the United States Marshals Service.
The United States Marshals Service is this nation’s oldest federal law enforcement agency, having been created in 1789.
