U.S. Marshals Service 15 Most Wanted Fugitives

The U.S. Marshals Service is like the Swiss Army knife of American law enforcement. They're a part of the Justice Department and have been around since 1789, making them the oldest federal law enforcement agency in the U.S.

If there's a fugitive on the run, the Marshals are on their tail. They're the go-to folks for tracking down people wanted for serious crimes.

Ever seen a movie where a witness needs to disappear to testify against the mob? That's these guys. U.S. Marshals also protect witnesses and their families in criminal cases, giving them new identities and safe places to live.

Marshals also oversee the transportation of prisoners, as well as make sure that sex offenders are living where they're supposed to be and following the rules.
