Cheyenne, WY (STL.News) On Friday, November 8, 2019, United States Marshals Service Director Donald Washington administered the oath of office to six newly appointed United States Marshals at the U.S. Marshals Service Headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. Randall Huff from Cheyenne, Wyoming was one of the six Marshals who was nominated by President Donald J. Trump and confirmed by the United States Senate. Marshal Huff took office in Cheyenne earlier this year.
After Director Washington administered the oath of office and presented their badges and credentials, the six newly appointed Marshals signed their oath on an antique desk once used by Wyatt Earp. Being appointed a United States Marshal is a proud tradition started in 1789 by President George Washington, who appointed one Marshal for each of the original 13 colonies.
The swearing-in ceremony took place after the completion of a week-long training session conducted by the U.S. Marshals Training Division. Also attending the training were the Chief Deputy Marshal and Administrative Officer from Cheyenne. Marshal Huff joins other U.S. Marshals who serve in 94 districts around the country, including Guam and Puerto Rico.
Marshal Huff began his law enforcement career in 1984 with the Torrington, Wyoming police department. In 1990 he was hired by the Division of Criminal Investigation in Cheyenne, Wyoming as a Special Agent conducting drug and violent crime investigations. Later in his career at DCI he conducted Internet Crime investigations. Marshal Huff holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Wyoming and has an honorable discharge from the United States Marine Corps. “I look forward to continuing service to the citizens of Wyoming in my new position,” said Marshal Huff.
