WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Senate confirmed Ronald Davis’s nomination to serve as Director of the United States Marshals Service (USMS) by unanimous consent.  U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement regarding Mr. Davis’s confirmation:

“Ronald Davis is an experienced law enforcement veteran who will be ready on day one to lead the U.S. Marshals Service—which is why it was no surprise that he won the support of virtually every major law enforcement organization in the country.  At this moment in history, Mr. Davis will be critical in this Administration’s efforts to protect public safety, safeguard the Judiciary, and broadly advance the cause of justice.”
