  • US Marshal Service

    Has anyone had any experience in/with this agency? What are your views on the Marshals and the work they do? Would you consider becoming a deputy if you had the chance?
    "For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil."

    Romans 13:4

    One of my old co-workers left our agency and went into the Marshals. He loves it. He said the first 1-2 years, you are stuck "in the box" guarding courtrooms, but after that it is a great job.

      I've had a few close friends that were Marshalls. One of my best friends that I now work with left the Marshalls and comae local (still not sure why ). It's a good job once you can get away from bailiff duty. Currently they are not even looking at anyone who is not within 120 days before or after their EAS from active duty military. Public recruiting is not scheduled to open this year.

        They use a lot of retired leo's around here for baliff and transport and hospital guard etc. That's the boring job but easy extra money for the older guys.

        If you get in and prove yourself you will land in a position that rock & rolls all the time.

          I just talked to a Marshall's recruiter last week. He said that next year they would reopen recruiting to the public for the first time in a while. I am very excited.

            I worked with the Marshals quite a bit. They took our prisoners (daytime arrests), or brought them to court if I arrested them at night. I don't know how they manage to stay awake in some of the courtrooms - some lawyers were so boring - and it was my case!
            They were mostly fine folks to work with. The ones I worked the most with would 'do to ride the river', i.e I trusted them with my 6 o'clock any time.
            Overall, a very good organization and good people.

              My partner left New Orleans 16 years ago to be a U.S Marshall and it sounds good but it's not all as glorious as it sounds.

                Don't forget that they work for the Dept of Treasury. That means they enforce regulations concerning assets seizures and business compliance; not just chasing bail jumpers and protecting judges.

                    Sinepari,

                    For clarification the U.S. Marshals Service is under the Department of Justice not the Treasury.

                        The one benefit my xpartner makes by being a U.s. Marshall is he makes close to a 100k a year. Other than that it's quite boring and before he became a supervisor he had to travel a lot.
