SECTION 2417
Bond of marshal
Uniform District Court Act (UDC) CHAPTER 565, ARTICLE 23
§ 2417. Bond of marshal. 1. No marshal shall be permitted to enter
upon the duties of his office until he shall have given a bond as herein
prescribed. The bond shall be executed by the marshal with a fidelity or
surety company duly authorized by law to act as surety or with two
sufficient sureties, who shall be residents of the county and each of
whom shall be the owner of real estate therein of the value of double
the penalty of the bond, which shall be in such sum as the board of
supervisors shall prescribe but not less than three thousand dollars.
The bond shall provide that the marshal and the surety or sureties shall
jointly and severally answer to the county and any persons that may
complain, for the true and faithful execution by such marshal of the
duties of his office. The bond shall be submitted for approval to a
judge of the court in the district in which the marshal was appointed;
and such judge shall have power to require that the surety or sureties
justify before him within five days after the bond shall have been
submitted, and shall approve or reject the bond within five days
thereafter. When so approved, the bond shall be filed with the county
clerk of the county.

2. The bond must be executed, approved and filed within thirty days
after the appointment of the marshal or he shall be deemed to have
declined his appointment and another person shall be appointed in his
place.
