The U.S. Marshal’s Office in Arizona Territory was established on February 24, 1863. President Abraham Lincoln appointed Milton B. Duffield as Arizona Marshal on March 10, 1863. Headquarters were opened in 1864 in Tucson. (In June 1901 the Office was moved to Phoenix). The Marshal held the primary duty of law enforcement in the territory. He was empowered to hire deputies as needed (with the approval of the Justice Department) and to form posses. After 1854, the marshal was empowered to summon the military as posse members. Principal duties of the marshal’s office included the protection of public lands, assistance to Indians, suppression of domestic insurrections, and the enforcement of laws regulating land settlement, morals (from polygamy to prize fighting), labor relations and other aspects of territorial life.When Arizona entered the Union in 1912, the Territorial Court was abolished and the U.S. Marshal for Arizona was assigned to the newly-created Federal District Court of Arizona (March 2, 1912)
