Federal Detention Trustee

As directed by the Department of Justice in June 2012, the Office of the Federal Detention Trustee merged with the United States Marshals Service (USMS) on October 1, 2012, at which time USMS Director Stacia Hylton assumed the duties as the Federal Detention Trustee. The merger of these Department of Justice entities will better align detention resources with existing operations, streamline financial processes and reduce administrative costs. The Trustee's vision is a premier, world-class prisoner operations capability supporting the judicial process by ensuring the effective, safe, secure, and humane detention and transportation of Federal detainees at the best value.
