The Federal Marshals Service was started with very specific goals in mind.
The first goal is the return of wanted fugitives, those people who have active warrants against their name, into lawful custody.
The second goal is to assist police services by being able to respond to Priority 2/3 calls and all non-emergency calls, allowing the police more time for investigations and allowing more members to be available for 911/Priority 1 calls.
And, after careful consideration, it was decided that there were other venues where the Federal Marshals Service could utilize our officers experiences and expertise.
Police Officers cannot be everywhere at once, yet their workload increases daily, but
we still expect them to be there when we call them, to be there sooner not later.
The Federal Marshals Service works, not to replace police officers, but with them,
so that Police Services can better utilize their resources where they are needed the most.
With the ever increasing awareness and concern for events that are happening in todays
world, we as a community need to be prepared for any given situation that may arise.
We cannot expect that Federal, Provincial or Municipal Police Services would be able to handle a SIGNIFICANT EMERGENCY SITUATION [Hurricane Katrina for example] and still be able to perform everyday, normal policing duties.
Which is why we at the Federal Marshals Service have chosen the staff that we have.
Their training will enable them to assist any Police or Emergency Service that would ask for our assistance.
And because of this training we can be beneficial to you as a home owner, business owner or Government Agency.
I found the parts where he mentions we already have teleporters(nowadays called stargates) and Replicators (ala Star Trek) to be most fascinating, although admittedly the hardest ones to believe.
Physicists hope to teleport complex molecules in the coming years. After that, a DNA molecule or virus could be teleported within decades.

Perhaps the most tangible of the far-out technologies suggested by Einstein’s theories is teleportation. The key lies in a celebrated 1935 paper (doc) by Einstein and his colleagues Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen. Ironically, in their paper they proposed an experiment—the so-called EPR experiment, named for the three authors—to kill off, once and for all, quantum theory’s introduction of probability into physics. Quantum theory requires probability because its formulas do not directly describe things like the precise position of particles. Instead, the formulas describe waves, known as Schrödinger waves. The amplitude of the waves at a particular location translates to the probability that a particle will be found at that point.
As the EPR experiment pointed out, according to quantum theory, if two particles—electrons, for example—are initially vibrating in unison (a state called coherence), they can remain in wavelike synchronization even if they are separated by a large distance. Two electrons may be trillions of miles apart, but there is still an invisible Schrödinger wave connecting them, like an umbilical cord. If something happens to one electron, some of that information is immediately transmitted to the other, faster than the speed of light. This concept—that particles vibrating in coherence have some kind of deep connection—is called quantum entanglement. Einstein derisively called this “spooky action at a distance,” and he took it to “prove” that quantum theory was wrong, since nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.

ANOTHER LOOKING GLASS In science fiction movies like Stargate and Contact, wormholes connect distant points in the universe, allowing people to travel from one spot to another in far less time than the hundreds or millions of years required to make the trip at the speed of light, the greatest conventional velocity. Einstein’s general theory of relativity suggests the possibility of wormholes—literal shortcuts through space-time caused by the curvature of the universe itself. But do wormholes really exist, or are they figments of mathematics?
Researchers from Australia and Japan have successfully teleported wave packets of light, potentially revolutionising quantum communications and computing.
Scientists have performed successful teleportation on atoms for the first time, the journal Nature reports.

It's a service used by the government. DUH!
Get educated yourself and read the page jerk!
