In 1995, the air fleets of the Marshals Service and the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) merged to create the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System (JPATS). The merger created a more efficient and effective system for transporting prisoners . Operated by the Marshals Service, JPATS is one of the largest transporters of prisoners in the world - handling hundreds of requests every day to move prisoners between judicial districts, correctional institutions and foreign countries.
