Robert D. Foley, a native of Massachusetts with a law degree, who has investigated everything from counterterrorism to gangs to drugs and police corruption, will become the new head of the Detroit FBI, Deadline Detroit has learned.
Foley is currently the special agent in charge of the Administrative Division for the FBI’s Washington Field Office. He joined the FBI in 1996.
Foley replaces Andrew Arena, who retired at the end of May to become head of the Detroit Crime Commission. Todd Mayberry, the agent who served as interim head of the Detroit division after Arena left, died earlier this month due to complications from liver cancer at age 41.
A formal public announcement on the appointment of Foley has yet to be made.
