“There’s an escape plan by all the marshals to leave the agency,” the marshal says. “I always tell the young guys to get out after three years, since that is the minimum amount of time other agencies want to see from transferees.”
While many marshals appear to be fleeing the agency because of its incompetence in protecting them, the agency also appears intent on thinning its own ranks. The TSA has indicated its plans to close several of its field offices, and has frozen hiring at several others.
Agency-wide malaise appears to have gotten so bad that a senior leadership team from TSA headquarters has begun visiting field offices across the country in an attempt to boost morale. The current marshal says agents aren’t buying it.
