As a former U.S. marshal, James Plousis takes an engaging look at his life and career in his book, Jersey Lawman: Life on the Right Side of Crime, with proceeds going to the U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund.
This first-person narrative tells the story of Plousis and his more than four decades in law enforcement--from rookie cop in a rough New Jersey Pine Barrens town to the youngest elected county sheriff in America at that time; and from his appointment as U.S. marshal for New Jersey to his assignment as chairman of the New Jersey Parole Board.
In 2002, President George W. Bush appointed Plousis as a U.S. marshal. In this position he fought to bring the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Safe Surrender program to the Garden State and worked on high-profile cases here and abroad. For seven years afterward he was chairman of the New Jersey Parole Board. He now chairs the Casino Control Commission in Atlantic City. In the book, Plousis relates many personal efforts, including a humanitarian mission to earthquake-ravaged Haiti.

Plousis and freelancer George Ingram (pictured above) agreed at the outset that the U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund will receive the proceeds from Jersey Lawman. It is a private, non-profit corporation formed “exclusively for charitable and educational disbursements of its funds to the surviving family members of active United States Marshals, Deputy U.S. Marshals, Marshals Service Employees, and Special Deputy U.S. Marshals who are killed in the line of duty.”
