Douglas County commissioner nominated for U.S. marshal of Colorado

President Donald Trump selected former sheriff David Weaver

Posted

President Donald Trump has nominated Douglas County Commissioner David Weaver to serve as the United States marshal for the District of Colorado, according to a Nov. 17 news release from the White House.

Prior to being elected commissioner of District I in 2014, Weaver served as Douglas County sheriff for two terms. He was employed by the sheriff's office for 33 years.

"It is an honor to be nominated and the process is still underway," said Weaver.

The U.S. Senate must confirm nominees for U.S. marshal. Duties of the position include protecting the federal judiciary, apprehending fugitives, transporting prisoners and protecting witnesses, the release says.

Neither Douglas County officials nor Weaver had further information on the nomination or a timeline.
