The Fayette County Marshal's Office was established in 1983 by the Board of Commissioners. The first Marshal was hired for the primary purpose of investigating alleged violations of County ordinances.
In July 1989 the Board of Commissioners consolidated Code Enforcement, Park Ranger, and the Safety Director into the Marshal's Office which became a Law Enforcement agency recognized by the Peace Officers Standard and Training Council.
In 1990 the Marshal's Office consisted of one Marshal, two Deputy Marshal's and a Administrative Secretary. In that year the department worked 2194 calls for service.
Over the last eight years, this department has grown to 10 personnel consisting of one Marshal, eight Deputy Marshals and an Administrative Secretary.
