WELCOME TO THE MARION COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
Sheriff Jimmy Shinn
This site is intended to provide you with information about the different services that our office provides to the citizens that we serve. I strive to make this office a professional organization that believes in Public Service to you, our citizens that we work for.
As your Sheriff, it is very important to me that our staff treat people, all people, with Respect, Integrity and Fairness when performing their duties. I have always been a believer that if you treat people with this attitude, regardless of their wrongs, that they will one day be grateful and will treat you the same.
As YOUR Sheriff, I always strive to be the People's Sheriff. The Sheriff that will treat all with fairness. The Sheriff that will always make himself available and accessible to the People, and the Sheriff that will treat his staff like his own family.
The office of the Sheriff is rich in history. The office of the Sheriff is a very important arm of the Judicial Court system. The Office of the Sheriff is the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the County. Although not perfect, I truly try to be the best People's Sheriff that I can be. I thank you, the citizens of Marion County for this great opportunity to serve you as your Sheriff.
