The Dallas FBI will have a new boss soon.
The FBI announced that Diego Rodriguez, special agent in charge of the Criminal Division in New York, will take over as the SAC in Dallas.
He’ll replace Robert Casey who will be retiring on April 30.
“I have the highest regard for Mr. Rodriguez,” Casey said of Rodriguez in a statement. ” I am confident that he has the experience and leadership qualities to ensure an effective role here in the Dallas office.”
The two served together in Miami and at headquarters.
Rodriguez will start in Dallas in the summer.
In his present post, Rodriguez is responsible for investigations including white-collar crimes, violent crimes and civil rights.
He started his career in 1990 in the New York division where he was SWAT team and the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF).
