What is the difference between a united states marshal and a bounty hunter? Just wondering because I was looking into a career in becoming a united states mashal. Thanks for you help. Really appreciate it.
A bounty hunter captures fugitives for a monetary reward and in some states do not require any formal training and are unlicensed requiring only sanction from a bails bondsmen to operate while a US Marshal is normally from a Federal Law Enforcement Agency within the United States Department of Justice and is responsible for arresting wanted fugitives, transporting federal prisoners, protecting endangered federal witnesses, and managing assets seized from criminal enterprises. The Marshals Service is responsible for 55.2 percent of arrests of federal fugitives.
Bountry hunters are self employed and get paid on completion of a capture
Marshals work for the government and get paid like everyone else with a job
Additionally, the US Marshals can forcibly deputize any law enforcement personnel (except military) in the US, something no other agency can do.
Marshals work for goverment thats all I know and they have all these cool benefits
