Sheriff Phil Sims

Sheriff Phil Sims talks to the County Commission about having armed deputies handle the bulk of Courthouse security in the future.

Marshall County Sheriff Phil Sims approached the Marshall County Commission Wednesday about more more armed deputies, so they can be at each courthouse.

"To me, the goal should be deputies all the way around. I feel like at some point in time we are going to have an incident," Sims said.
