CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Gov. Maggie Hassan will honor the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Marshals Service by proclaiming it United States Marshals Day in New Hampshire.

Hassan will present the proclamation to members of the marshals service during a ceremony at the Statehouse Wednesday.

One aspect of the service is the operation of fugitive task forces to track and apprehend suspects who have fled the jurisdiction. There are 85 local task forces nationwide, where local and state officers team up with their federal counterparts.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force, more than 5,500 suspects have been arrested on charges ranging from murder to parole violations.

The proclamation ceremony is at 1 p.m.
