Marion County Sheriff's Office

The City contracts with the Marion County Sheriff's Office for local policing. If you have an issue that you would like a deputy to investigate or talk with you about please call City Hall and the City Manager will setup a meeting. Anonymous tips or information can be reported as well to City Hall. Visit the Sheriff's Office website for more resources like the crime maps, getting an alarm permit, viewing the jail inmate roster, and much more! 


Below you will find the Sheriff's Patrol Logs and Stats for the month. These reports are reviewed monthly at the Donald City Council Meetings. The logs are reports from the shifts that are paid for by the City. The stats are based on police involvement in the City (a compilation of information from both City contract and regular patrol hours).

Monthly Safety Tip

Make sure all exterior doors are solid core and have a peephole or viewer in all entry doors. Do not trust door chain. They can easily be broken. Never open the door to anyone you do not know. Insist service personnel verify their identity before allowing them into your home.
