(SD)-New U-S Marshal For SD Settling Into Job
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A man who spent nearly 30 years at the South Dakota Highway Patrol is settling in as the state's new U.S. marshal.
64-year-old Dan Mosteller was nominated by President Trump in October, confirmed by the Senate last month, and sworn-in April 3 as the U.S. marshal for South Dakota.
Mosteller joined the state Highway Patrol in 1983, serving as superintendent from 2003 until his retirement in 2010. Mosteller has since worked in security at the Capitol and became the law enforcement coordinator for the U.S. attorney's office in South Dakota.
The U.S. Marshals Service is the country's oldest law enforcement agency. The term as Marshal for a state normally lasts 4 years but tracks with a president's term in office.
