John Gibbons- the first black US Marshal from Massachusetts is retiring after 42 years in criminal justice.
He was a former state trooper who was nominated to the post by Barack Obama.
He was a graduate of AIC and says he plans to pursue a role in the public sector.
Gibbons was a State Trooper for part of his career.
John always answered the call of duty and kept our communities safe. I was especially pleased when President Obama appointed him United States Marshal for Massachusetts where he continued his outstanding record of public service.
The Commonwealth owes John a debt of gratitude for his kindness, professionalism, and commitment to its citizens. After a remarkable 42-year career, he deserves nothing but the very best in his retirement,” said Congressman Richard E. Neal.
