WASHINGTON, D.C. — With a new presidential administration comes vacancies in U.S. attorney and U.S. marshal positions and, on Wednesday U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, issued a call for applicants to fill critical law enforcement vacancies for Ohio’s Southern District.

“Ohio is home to some of the best legal minds and law enforcement professionals,” Brown said in a news release. “As we work with the Biden administration to fill these vacancies in the Southern District, we are looking for experienced candidates with a commitment to equal justice and who have been involved in their communities.
