U.S. Marshal

U.S. marshals and deputy marshals provide the federal courts with protection while making sure the judicial system operates correctly. Their job description includes shielding federal witnesses, transferring federal prisoners, providing security for federal judiciary, and supervising criminal enterprise assets in custody. They have the broadest range of authority of all federal law enforcement agencies and work in virtually every federal law enforcement endeavor. U.S. marshals also track and apprehend federal fugitives.
