In November 2009, David L. Cargill, Jr., 57, was named the United States Marshal for the District of New Hampshire. Prior to his nomination, Marshal Cargill served a long and distinguished career with the New Hampshire State Police. Marshal Cargill retired from the NH State Police in October, 2009 holding the rank of Lieutenant. While with the State Police, Marshal Cargill served as the commander of the New Hampshire State Police Terrorism and Intelligence Unit. U.S. Marshal Cargill began his lengthy career in law enforcement in 1984 as a police officer with the Hampton, NH Police Department, a position he held until he was hired as a trooper with the New Hampshire State Police in 1986. Marshal Cargill is also a 2007 graduate of Granite State College with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Criminal Justice Management.

As the U.S. Marshal, Cargill has been actively promoting the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force throughout the State of New Hampshire. The New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force is truly a valuable asset available to state, county and local law enforcement to assist in the location and apprehension of fugitives throughout the state, country and world. These capabilities are further promoted to the public through excellent media relations that support the U.S. Marshals and the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force. The partnership between the media, the public and law enforcement is a three pronged approach to making our streets a safer place. This is evident through the highly successful “Fugitive of the Week” program that highlights one of New Hampshire’s Most Wanted fugitives each week, which has resulted in hundreds of arrests since 2007.

Additionally, Marshal Cargill has ensured that the deputy U.S. Marshals and task force officers in New Hampshire are constantly enhancing their capabilities through training, equipment and manpower. All of these efforts are to maintain and enhance officer preparedness and officer safety.
