This system contains written requests for special deputation of other Federal, state and local law enforcement officials, selected certificates of firearms qualifications, notification of approvals, and oath of office of persons granted special deputation.
The Special Deputation File system serves as a centralized record of the special deputations granted by the United States Marshals Service to assist in tracking, controlling and monitoring the Special Deputation Program.
Records are protected from unauthorized access through appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards. Access is restricted by locks, assigned codes and passwords to personnel with a need-to-know to perform their official duties.
Users are restricted to only those privileges necessary to perform assigned tasks.
The United States Marshals Service is authorized to deputize selected persons to perform the functions of a Deputy U.S. Marshal whenever the law enforcement needs of the United States Marshals Service so require, to provide courtroom security for the Federal judiciary, and as designated pursuant to 28 C.F.R. 0.112 and 0.19(a)(3).
