"Salute to Service"

I salute the staff of the Marion County Detention Center. They are committed to their duties, responsibilities, and are very much a part of providing public safety for the residents of our county. Staff members are continuously challenged with assessing risk and needs of each individual booked into our facility to include maintaining an orderly operation as well as an appropriate level of quality of life.

Corrections is a career for true professionals. These individuals take their duties seriously and I am pleased and excited about working with them and serving our county.

Barry Brady, Jailer
