Chairman Goodlatte: “Every day, the men and women working in the Federal Bureau of Prisons and U.S. Marshals Service protect our communities and carry out justice. Among their responsibilities, these law enforcement officers maintain the safety of federal prisons, prepare and help offenders re-enter society, apprehend fugitives of the law, and provide federal judicial security. This week, the Crime Subcommittee will examine the missions and operations of the Federal Bureau of Prisons and U.S. Marshals Service in order to make sure these agencies have the necessary tools to do their jobs, and to identify areas for reform and cost savings.”

Subcommittee Chairman Gowdy: “The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and United States Marshals Service (USMS) play a critical role in detaining and housing criminals, protecting the safety of our citizens, and enforcing the law. I look forward to hearing from the heads of BOP and USMS on Wednesday to examine Congress’ role in supporting their missions and operations, and identify areas in need of improvement.”
