The new Marshall County sheriff was sworn in today at 2:00 PM at the Marshall County Courthouse.
Phil Sims started off his first day as sheriff at midnight checking off one of his first duties, feeding inmates.
Sims is still getting comfortable in his new position, but he’s already been addressing repairs needed in the jail this morning. Sims says he has a plan and is confident in his team.
“They’re hitting the road running today, and we’re fixing things left and right. We’re addressing issues left and right, and so far, even though it’s been somewhat chaotic, it’s been a smooth chaotic transition so far,” said Sheriff Phil Sims.
