- You may be looking for the Federal Air Marshal Service.
The United States Marshals Service was a federal law enforcement agency within the Department of Justice.
A Federal Marshal accompanied David Weiss, a lawyer from Amnesty Global who was summoned by someone working for Habib Marwan to secure the habeas corpus rights of Joe Prado. Prado was about to be interrogated at CTU Los Angeles by Curtis Manning and Eric Richards without charges because he was the primary lead in tracking down a nuclear warhead stolen by Marwan. CTU official Bill Buchanan could not convince Judge Norton to send Weiss away, and since Weiss successfully made his case, Prado was released. However, Jack Bauer ignored the legal system and tortured Prado himself after knocking out the Marshal with a stun gun in the parking lot shortly before 1am.
A Federal Marshal was assigned to protect Collette Stenger, a criminal who informed on Vladimir Bierko in return for immunity from prosecution. The information she supplied was false, so her immunity was eligible for being voided by the President. Once this was discovered, Jack Bauer entered her holding cell, but before the paperwork could clear. The Marshal made an effort to stop Jack from interrogating her, but Jack knocked the man out, retrieved his pistol, and extracted the truth from Stenger.
At the close of Day 5, the Attorney General of President Charles Logan reviewed evidence that proved Logan was complicit in the Sentox nerve gas conspiracy. The Attorney General ordered the agents who were with the President to bring him into holding, and the first of them to be contacted was a Federal Marshal named Holtzman. Holtzman informed Logan about the charges, and assisted the Secret Service during the arrest.
