CHEYENNE – On Nov. 8, 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, was one of the six marshals nominated by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Huff took office in Cheyenne earlier this year.

After 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.

Huff began his law enforcement career in 1984 with the Torrington Police Department. In 1990, he was hired by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation in Cheyenne as a special agent conducting drug and violent crime investigations.

Later in his career at DCI, he conducted internet crime investigations. Huff holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Wyoming and has an honorable discharge from the United States Marine Corps.
