Longtime Wyoming law enforcement officer sworn as marshal
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A longtime Wyoming law enforcement officer has been sworn in as the U.S. marshal for the state.
Randall Huff of Cheyenne took office earlier this year, but he was sworn in Friday at the U.S. Marshals Service headquarters in Arlington, Virginia.
As marshal, Huff is responsible for the security at federal courthouses, arresting fugitives, transporting federal prisoners, executing court orders and keeping witnesses safe.
Huff joined the Torrington Police Department in 1984. Six years later, he became a special agent for the state Division of Criminal Investigation, where he conducted drug, violent crime and internet crime investigations.
Huff graduated from the University of Wyoming and served in the U.S. Marine Corps.
