The Marshall ISD Police Department was officially licensed in November of 2014 and serves as the official security arm of the school district. As of July 2015, the department consists of a police chief, four full-time officers, and a department secretary.

The MISD Police Department is committed to the safety and security of all school personnel and students, as well as the protection and security management of all school district property.

The Marshall ISD Police Department began a community outreach program in 2017 called "Chow Down With the Chief," which involves District Police Chief Joe Arledge joining selected students from campuses throughout the school district for lunch. Typically on Fridays each week, Chief Arledge will arrive at the school, pick up the students, and treat them to lunch at a local restaurant of their choosing. The program was created as a reward for good students and also to allow the students and community to develop a positive relationship with local law enforcement. School administrators and teachers select their students based on leadership, good behavior, positive attitudes and academic performance.

The Texas Department of Family Protective Services provides the a secure website [CLICK HERE] for reporting suspicions of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of children, adults with disabilities, or people who are elderly (65 years or older).

This website is only for reporting situations that do not require an emergency response. An emergency is a situation where a child, adult with disabilities, or person who is elderly faces an immediate risk of abuse or neglect that could result in death or serious harm. If it is an emergency call 911.

The Texas Family Code 261.101 requires professionals to make a report within 48 hours of first suspecting abuse, neglect or exploitation of children. The Human Resources code Chapter 48 (48.051) requires a person having cause to believe that an elderly or disabled person is in the state of abuse, neglect, or exploitation to report the information required immediately.

Reports made through this web site take up to 24 hours to process. Call the Texas Abuse Hotline at 1-800-252-5400 if:

• You believe your situation requires action in less than 24 hours.
• You prefer to remain anonymous.
• You have insufficient data to complete the required information on the report.
• You do not want an e-mail to confirm your report.
