1789: Oldest Federal Law Enforcement Agency in the United States. On September 24, 1789, President George Washington appointed the first 13 U.S. Marshals following the passage of the first Judiciary Act.

Today, the US Marshals Service reports to the US Attorney General. The President of the United States still appoints a US Marshal for each of the 94 Federal Districts. There are currently approximately 3,571 Deputy US Marshals and criminal investigators.

The principal responsibilities of the US Marshal Service are Judicial Security, Asset Forfeiture, Prisoner Operations & Transportation, Fugitive Apprehension, Recovery of Missing Children, and Witness Security.

The US Marshals Posse also assists the U.S. Marshals Service in an all-volunteer support capacity on a wide range of projects as requested by the U.S. Marshal.
