· Ensuring general court security to judiciary personnel, participants in court proceedings, and the general public visiting judicial facilities;

· Providing security for justices and judges on official business beyond the Judiciary grounds;

· Serving various forms of process such as bench warrants; and

· Assisting in the transportation of criminal offenders.

Each marshal must undergo firearms training and certification to the same extent as the Department of Public Safety.
