New U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Texas Sworn In

San Antonio, TXThe 33rd U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Texas was sworn in this morning before a crowd of U.S. Marshals Service personnel, friends and dignitaries.

Susan L. Pamerleau, former Sheriff of Bexar County, took the oath of office today before Honorable Chief Judge Orlando Garcia at the John H. Wood United States Courthouse. Marshal Pamerleau was nominated by President Donald Trump on April 26, 2018 and confirmed by the United States Senate on August 28, 2018.

“I’m ready to get to work… and excited to continue making our communities and our nation safe,” Pamerleau said. “There are great people in the U.S. Marshals Service who do important work, and I look forward to the continued partnership with our federal, state and local law enforcement agencies as we track down fugitives and protect the federal judicial system in the Western District of Texas.”

Before serving as the 38th Sheriff of Bexar County, Pamerleau served as Senior Vice President at USAA and retired from the United States Air Force after 32 years at the rank of Major General. In the 161 years since the Western District of Texas was established, Pamerleau is the first woman to serve as the United States Marshal for the district.
