Jeff Brown has been serving as City Marshal for the City of Shelbina for 14 months.
Brown admits there have been both challenging and rewarding times but has enjoyed the experience.
Brown is currently running unopposed for the April 2022 General Municipal Election to continue his duties as City Marshal.
“I am beyond excited to continue working for the citizens of Shelbina for the next four years,” Brown said.
The Shelbina Police Department has been short-staffed since Brown has been in office.
“I would not have made it through the year without the hard work of my awesome staff and the support from the citizens of Shelbina,” Brown continued, “The Mayor and Board of Aldermen for the City of Shelbina have been very supportive of the department and me.”
Upon taking office Brown, had updated equipment with very few needs on that front. However, the officers needed new portable radios and the SPD was able to purchase those through a funding source which didn’t cost the taxpayers.
SPD officers were also in need of a new taser, which was purchased through a grant from MIRMA, the cities insurance carrier.
Marshal Brown said the department will continue to seek out and apply for grant funding to keep the department updated.
Brown recognized the support from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
“We live in a small county, and it is amazing to see the departments work together to make our community and county a safer place to live, work and visit,” Brown continued, “As we look forward to 2022 my staff and I will continue our hard work to protect and serve the citizens of Shelbina.”
