Salute the Badge: Marshall Police Chief Jesus "Eddie" Campa

Police chief earns humanitarian award

MARSHALL, Tx. - Across the country tensions have been high between citizens and law enforcement.

Marshall, Texas is no different.

"When I first got here, I was advised we had some external issues that we had to mend. And that was the relationship that we had with the community and the preconceived notion that the community had of the police department," said Chief Jesus "Eddie" Campa, Marshall Police Department.

To break down those barriers, Chief Campa started the "No Colors, No Labels" initiative.

The police department hosts events aimed at ending hate by promoting understanding between different races.

For his efforts, Chief Campa earned the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Humanitarian award from Bethesda Missionary Baptist church in Marshall.

"This award means a lot because I've always been a fan of Martin Luther King and his vision and his dream," shared Campa.

Chief Campa says he will continue strengthening Marshall's community policing efforts.

"I'm just very happy I got the opportunity to come to Marshall and had the vision to start No Colors No Labels initiative.... rebuilding the dream and continuing to move forward."
