The Marshall City Commission voted to confirm City Manager Lisa Agnor’s appointment of Cliff Carruth as Marshall’s new Chief of Police at the commission meeting on September 28th.
Carruth, who will be retiring from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has a total of 26 years of experience in law enforcement; six of those years were as a police officer with the Longview Police Department.
He most recently was the Senior Supervisory Resident Agent at the Little Rock Division of the FBI. He is a graduate of LeTourneau University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Management, as well as the East Texas Police Academy and FBI Academy. Carruth replaces Ron Davis, who was hired in May as Interim Police Chief.
Davis will be working with Carruth to ensure a smooth transition into his new role as Chief of Police. Carruth said “My main objective is to partner with the community not just police the community. Make sure that we’re partnering with the different communities, identifying what problems exsist and then working with the community to solve those problems.”
He will begin his new role at the end of October.
