Retired Marine Expected to Lead Secret Service

Retired Marine Major Gen. Randolph Alles, the current U.S. Customs and Border deputy, is expected to be named the new head of Secret Service, according to a former law enforcement official familiar with the selection process.

William Callahan, the deputy director of the Secret Service, has been serving as interim director since March 4, when former director Joseph Clancy retired. Secret Service has faced several breaches and controversies since President Trump entered the White House in January, including two agents who were reportedly fired over a fence jumping incident in March. Patrick O'Carroll, a former Secret Service agent now serving as executive director of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, said the lack of a permanent director "obviously must have some strain" with an agency already suffering from low morale. "The reason is when you start taking a look at what could go wrong on your watch the last thing you want is for something to happen to the president," O'Carroll said.
