Marshall expressed his concerns about increasing drug use, about phone scams, about human trafficking, about the potential loss of Congressional seats and about identity theft.He pledged his dedication to making and keeping Alabama a safe place to do business and to live and raise a family.Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas thanked Marshall for taking time to speak to the Troy Rotarians and for always making himself accessible to law enforcement.“Attorney General Steve Marshall understands what law enforcement is up against on a daily basis,” Thomas said. “He is always receptive to what we have to say and is open to suggestions of ways to do what we do better and in safer. Attorney General Marshall is a strong voice for law enforcement in the Legislature and we appreciate what he does, not just for law enforcement but for all Alabama.” By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder Email the author Latest Stories Print Article Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
