U.S. Marshal Edwin D. Sloane
On December 19, 2010, President Barack Obama, with
unanimous and consent of the Senate appointed Edwin Donovan Sloane, a
career chief law enforcement officer of the United States Marshals
Service, as the 41st United States Marshal for the District of Columbia.
U.S. Marshal Sloane is responsible for the enforcement of federal law
throughout the District of Columbia.
The U.S. Marshals Service recruited Edwin D. Sloane in 1990 from the
U.S. Capitol Police where he served with distinction during a four year
period. Upon joining the U.S. Marshals Service he rose through the ranks
serving in several key positions to include Senior Inspector,
Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal and Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal of the
Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia. U.S. Marshal Sloane also
held a key executive level position with the nationwide Prisoner
Operations Division for the U.S. Marshals Service. He has worked on
numerous fugitive task forces which led to successful resolution of
various high profile local, national and international criminal cases.
Marshal Sloane left the District of Virgin Islands and was promoted to
take charge of the complex Prisoner Operations Division, where he
directed and managed the prisoner operations programs involving in
excess of 55,000 federal detainees being held by 94 judicial districts
and 1,800 jails throughout the United States of America and its
territories. As an executive manager, U.S. Marshal Sloane has consulted
and coordinated policy with key federal law enforcement agencies. He has
worked diligently with senior executive level staff at Marshal Service
Headquarters and with the United States Marshals of the 94 judicial
districts on working groups to develop findings and recommendations that
affect the agency’s budgetary, fiscal requirements and staffing levels.
Following his Prisoner Operations assignment, he returned to his first
duty station and assumed the position of Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal for
the District of Columbia, which entailed the oversight of operations for
eight (8) distinct Federal Court systems comprised of over 100 federal
judges, along with the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. The
District of Columbia is one of the busiest courts in the nation with
many of the highest profile cases.
United States Marshal Edwin Donovan Sloane is a native
Washingtonian-first born son of loving parents, each served the citizens
of Washington D.C. in their capacities as a D.C. Fire Battalion and as a
dedicated elementary school teacher. Edwin D. Sloane received his high
school diploma from Monsignor James F. Mackin High School of Washington,
D.C. and is a graduate of American University, where he remains one of
the basketball program's all time celebrated starters and high scorers.
Marshal Sloane reveres his membership with the Washington area of
Fraternal Order of Police, life-time membership with the Alpha Phi Alpha
Fraternity and holds a significant position with the historic Buffalo
Soldiers Motorcycle Club, which each association is committed to
community service, helping youth providing scholarships and feeding the
needy. Marshal Sloane is extraordinarily proud of his three most beautiful, talented
and devoted daughters. He adores parenting and raising them with their mother.
