United States Marshal of the Western District of Missouri
Marshal James will discuss the origin of the United States Marshal Service, its structure, and its mission and then drill down to the Western District of Missouri. He served as a trooper, undercover investigator, and intelligence supervisor until 1987. In 1987, Marshal James became a Special Agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in Kansas City. As an ATF agent, he gained a reputation for working complex investigations on violent gangs, criminal organizations, and domestic terrorist groups. He was named “Co-Investigator of the Year” by the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association for his work in solving the murder of a federal witness. In 2002, the Marshal was called back to Washington to serve as ATF Incident Commander in the successful manhunt for the “DC Snipers” for which he received the Director’s Commendation.
