|United States Marshals Swearing-In Ceremony|
On Friday, March 30, 2018, Acting
Deputy Director David J. Anderson administered the oath of office to the
first United States Marshals (USM) appointed by President Donald J.
Trump and confirmed by the United States Senate. The swearing-in
ceremony took place at the United States Marshals Service (USMS)
Headquarters (HQ) after the completion of a week-long training session
produced and managed by the Training Division for the new USMs, their
Chief Deputy United States Marshals, and their Administrative Officers.
Being appointed a USM is a proud tradition started in 1789 by President
George Washington, who first appointed one USM for each of the original
13 colonies. While addressing the newly appointed USMs, Acting Deputy
Director Anderson expressed that “We look forward to building upon the
experiences and knowledge each of you bring to the table, as we continue
to build on our proud history and carry us forward into the future as
one United States Marshals Service.”
After administering the oath of office and presenting their badges and credentials, Acting Deputy Director Anderson joined each of the new USMs in signing their oath on an antique desk once used by Wyatt Earp. Family members and guests of the newly appointed USMs joined USMS senior leadership to witness their swearing-in ceremony and congratulate them.
