Faith Marshall

Faith Marshall is a police officer and member of the negotiation team for the Memphis Police Association. Born and raised in the Westwood neighborhood, Marshall worked in communications and online development for small businesses before joining the police department.

Unlike Atlanta, we live in a city with a mayor who offered police a 3% raise, and when we told him that wasn’t enough, he said that was all he had to give.
