Boxer Lauds President's Nomination of David Singer as U.S. Marshal for Central District of California
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) today praised President Obama’s nomination of Whittier Police Chief David M. Singer as the United States Marshal for the Central District of California. Boxer recommended Singer to the White House after a thorough interview and vetting process by the Senator’s Central District advisory committee.
Senator Boxer said, “I am pleased the President has nominated Whittier Police Chief David Singer to be the U.S. Marshal for the Central District of California. Chief Singer’s decades of experience in law enforcement and his commitment to public service will be a tremendous asset to the people of the Central District.”
Singer has been Whittier’s police chief since 2001. Before that, he spent 21 years with the Signal Hill Police Department, working his way up the ranks to Chief of Police. Chief Singer also has experience as a reserve officer for the Long Beach and Buena Park police departments and as a military police officer in the United States Air Force.
Over his career, Singer has developed a number of community-based policing programs. He chairs LA IMPACT, the countywide narcotics task force, and he has served as the president of the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs Association.
Chief Singer received both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from California State University Long Beach, where he has also served as an adjunct faculty member. Singer has also trained at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
U.S. Marshals work within the Justice Department as the law enforcement arm of the federal court system. They protect judges, attorneys, witnesses and jurors; secure courthouses; safeguard witnesses; transport prisoners; and execute court orders and civil and criminal processes.
The Central District of California comprises the counties of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange and Riverside. It is the most populous federal judicial district, with over 18 million residents spread across 40,000 square miles.
