U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) - District of Nevada
Explained by Las Vegas NV Federal Crimes Defense Attorneys

The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) is the law enforcement agency for the Department of Justice.  In other words, they serve as a federal police agency.

Nevada's division of the USMS is headquartered in Las Vegas and Reno.  Unlike state and local police which have very broad duties, U.S. marshals in Nevada are generally limited to the following purposes:

  • arresting wanted fugitives - Fugitive Investigative Strike Team (F.I.S.T.)
  • moving federal prisoners - Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System (JPATS)
  • protecting endangered witnesses in federal cases
  • protecting federal judges and federal courthouses
  • managing assets that were seized from alleged criminal activity

The main address and contact information for the U.S. Marshals Service, District of Nevada, is:

Lloyd D. George - U.S. Federal Courthouse
333 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Suite 2058
Las Vegas, NV 89101
