border patrol 3By Steve Neavling

The Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector in southern Arizona is losing its leader.

Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla Jr. is taking the helm at the agency’s Rio Grande Valley Sector, The Arizona Daily Star reports. 

The Nogales native will make the shift later this month.

Under Padilla’s watch, the Tucson Sector has seen a “marked decrease” in human smuggling, border violence and other illegal activities, according to CBP.

Padilla “always felt a sense of community and made it his purpose in life to reduce cross-border criminal activity while improving the quality of life for Arizona’s residents,” a news release said.

Padilla’s career with Border Patrol began in 1986 at the Sierra Blanca Border Patrol Sector in Texas.

fbi badgeBy Steve Neavling

J. Wallace LaPrade, who once led the FBI’s New York Field Office and helped oversee the safe return over several celebrity kidnapping victims, died on July 31 at the age of 89, the New York Times reports. 

LaPrade died after a battle with heart disease.

LaPrade was a controversial figure in the bureau and was fired as head of the New York office after being accused of hiding the extent of the bureau’s investigations of radical groups in the 1970s.

Before taking the helm in New York, LaPrade was head of the FBI’s Newark regional headquarters. He served 23 years as a federal agent.

Although LaPrade was credited with being more progressive on civil liberties issues than many in the bureau, he was accused to using aggressive tactics to investigate leftist radicals.
