Senate confirms Norton's recommendation for DC U.S. Marshal

On June 1, 2016

The Senate has confirmed Patrick Burke to serve as U.S. Marshal for the District of Columbia, according to the office of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC).

Burke, whom Norton recommended to President Obama, is an assistant chief in the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). President Obama, like President Clinton, granted Norton senatorial courtesy to recommend candidates for federal district court judges and other important federal law enforcement officials in the District. The U.S. Marshal for the District of Columbia is responsible for the enforcement of federal law throughout the District.

“I appreciate the Senate for getting this important confirmation done,” said Norton. “Assistant Chief Burke brings unparalleled knowledge and local experience to the U.S. Marshal post.”

Burke has spent his 26-year career as a police officer with MPD. He began his career as a patrol officer before rising to become one of five MPD assistant chiefs, who report directly to MPD Chief Cathy Lanier. From 2007-2011, Burke was the first assistant chief for the Homeland Security Bureau, where he oversaw the special operations and intelligence divisions and coordinated with federal and regional security and police forces. Since 2011, Burke has served as assistant chief for the Strategic Services Bureau, where he oversees agency policy, training, testing and recruiting.
