Frank Perry, who served 22 years as a special agent for the FBI, was named as secretary of the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, Triangle Business Journal writes.

Gov. Pat McCrory made the appointment after Perry began serving as the department’s interim secretary earlier this month.

“Frank Perry has dedicated his life to public safety, primarily through his distinguished FBI career,” McCrory said in an announcement. “He brings a wealth of real-world experience to the helm of DPS in addition to his dedication to public service.”

Perry is a North Carolina graduate who was completing doctoral work on ethics and political philosophy when he was recruited by the FBI, according to the Triangle Business Journal.
