Members of the Clark County Marshal's Division began life as Clark County Deputy Sheriffs. In 1973, the Las Vegas Police Department and the Clark County Sheriff's Office merged to create the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. It was at this time that the position of Clark County Bailiff was created. Their responsibility was to protect the Judges and County Court buildings.
In 2007, the Bailiffs became Deputy Marshals and formed the Clark County Deputy Marshal's Association.
