Longtime RCPHS member and past president Michael Greco was nominated Thursday by President Obama to lead the regional office of the U.S. Marshals Service (the agency that tracks down fugitives and runs the federal witness protection program).
U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer announced on Thursday that President Obama had nominated Michael Greco to be the next United States Marshal for the Southern District of New York. Schumer pointed out that Greco, who currently serves as a lieutenant in the state police, would be the first Latino to hold the post.
“Michael Greco has dedicated his career to protecting his fellow citizens,” Obama said in a statement. “He has displayed courage and persistence in the pursuit of justice, and I am honored to nominate him today to continue his selfless work as a U.S. Marshal.”
