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.
