[ARCHIVED] Cortney Watson to receive MPD Employee of the Year

MPD Patch


The Marshalltown Police Department is pleased to announce that Crime Scene Technician Cortney Watson has been selected by her peers to receive the 2018 Employee of the Year award.  Cortney will receive her well-deserved award during the Marshalltown City Council meeting on Monday, May 14th at 5:30 pm.

The Department’s Employee of the Year award has become an annual event in conjunction with National Police Week.  In 1962, President John F. Kennedy designated May 15th as Peace Officer Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.   

Cortney’s role is critical to the success of the department’s mission and her knowledge, skills, and abilities are well respected throughout the State of Iowa.

Please join us at the council meeting to help congratulate Cortney and thank her for her years of dedicated service to the citizens of Marshalltown.
