As part of a shake-up in the top ranks of the Secret Service, the agency’s second-highest official is transferring to a job at the Department of Homeland Security, the agency said Monday.
Deputy Director Alvin “A.T.” Smith accepted a position at the department starting Tuesday, said acting Director Joseph P. Clancy.
“Deputy Director Smith has had an exceptional law enforcement career spanning nearly 29 years within the United States Secret Service,” Mr. Clancy said. “His contributions to the agency have been invaluable. I salute his distinguished service to the Secret Service and the nation.”
Mr. Smith was appointed to the position of deputy director in April 2012 with responsibility for oversight of the protection service’s daily operations, including 6,500 employees and investigative and protective programs.
