WEST POINT, Miss. (WCBI) – U.S. Marshal Dennis Erby spoke to the West Point Rotary Club this afternoon. Erby leads the Northern District of Mississippi’s Marshal Service.

The US Marshal Service is a division of the Department of Justice. Erby is responsible for securing four federal courts in Northern Mississippi including Greenville, Oxford and two courts in Aberdeen. Erby says the US Marshal Service makes thousands of arrests each year, working with other agencies including local authorities and the FBI.

“As long as I’m the Marshal of the Northern District of Mississippi, we’re gonna do all we can to work with local agencies and to help them fulfill the mission that they have sworn to for the people of the state of Mississippi. We’re not so much concerned about who gets credit. We’re just concerned about resolving the case,” says Erby.

Erby has been lead the Northern District for a little more than a year.
