Border Patrol in Maine has a new chief.
Daniel Hiebert, a 29-year veteran of Border Patrol, will head up the Houlton Sector, which covers the state of Maine, Bangor Daily News reports.
Hiebert began his Border Patrol career in 1986 in Texas.
“This is the culmination of a long career. I still have quite a ways to go,” said Hiebert after taking his oath of office at the Army National Guard Regional Training Institute in Bangor. “I’m looking forward to getting involved with the state of Maine and Houlton Sector and doing what we can do to make sure the people of Maine feel safe knowing that their borders are protected.”
Hiebert is replacing acting Chief Patrol Agent Alfredo Casillas, who will return to his position of deputy chief patrol agent.
