President Bush has nominated Federico Rocha, law enforcement coordinator in the U.S. attorney’s office, to be the next U.S. marshal for the Northern District of California. Rocha’s nomination is subject to approval by the Senate. Rocha, an 11-year veteran of the Oakland Police Department, has been helping keep lines of communication open between federal prosecutors and federal and local law enforcement agencies. Rocha was also responsible for the U.S. attorney’s community outreach programs. The nomination comes approximately two years after the search began. Thomas Klenieski has been the acting U.S. marshal for much of that time. Klenieski is retiring later this year. San Francisco Law School Dean Joseph Russoniello, who headed a search committee that recommended Rocha for the job, said he is “eminently well qualified” for the job. Russoniello said his committee was asked to consider Rocha after it vetted an early list of candidates. Russoniello, a former U.S. attorney, said Rocha’s relationship with the U.S. attorney’s office and his standing as a solid Republican both counted solidly in his favor. Rocha is out of the office this week and could not be reached for comment. U.S. marshals are responsible for transporting defendants, protecting witnesses and court staff, handling security at federal buildings and tracking down fugitives.
