Should a dropdown be marked required in it has a default value?
I'm designing a form to create violations of employees from various departments. For quicker choosing the employee, I have a field for users to filter the department that the employee is from. Value of Department field are: All (default value) Department 1 Department 2 Department 3 My question is: Should the Department field marked as mandatory in this form? Thank you

For transparency and consistency (if this field is required) I would mark it same as the others.
IMO you should take a closer look on consistency in general. For the Date an Description the files are empty, for Department the value is pre-selected, and for Employee there you have placeholder.
Also with only 3 possible departments maybe it would be possible to use chips selection instead of drop-down.
