An FBI spokeswoman said Laughlin was nearing her mandatory retirement age of 57 in September.

“Many special agents choose to retire before that age-related mandatory point,” FBI spokeswoman Ayn Sandalo Dietrich said.

Kevin Favreau, FBI special agent in charge of the Nevada office, has retired from the bureau to take a job as head of a nonprofit youth golf leadership program, the Associated Press reports.

Favreau, 51, worked with the bureau for three decades.

During his career, Favreau served as special agent of counterintelligence for the FBI Washington, D.C., field office and assistant director of intelligence. He arrived in Las Vegas in January 2010.

His first days in Nevada were memorable ones. A social security recipient with a shotgun killed a security guard and injured a U.S. marshal at the the Lloyd D. George U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building in downtown Las Vegas.

If the FBI had a face in Chicago, it would be Special Agent Royden “Ross” Rice.

The 32-year veteran of the bureau was a media darling, urging the public to help find the most notorious criminals.

Now Rice is retiring, the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Before becoming the Chicago office’s main spokesman, Rice spent time fighting organized crime and cracking cases including robbery and kidnapping.

“Ross is best described as a real professional. He was an accomplished and experienced field agent who worked in one of our most capable and successful resident agencies,” Robert Grant, the former special agent in charge of the FBI office, told the Sun Times. “He was the steady, trusted and confident face and voice of the FBI in Chicago. And he is a good and trusted adviser and friend to me.”

The White House’s cybersecurity coordinator will retire after having already extended his two -year contract by half a year.

Howard Schmidt, 62, oversaw the first legislative proposal on cybersecurity, and informed the government on the nature and dangers of potential attacks… and how to prevent them, writes the Washington Post.

In addition to Schmidt’s advisory role, he helped coordinate the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. His term also saw the country’s first international strategy for cyberspace, raising cyber security issues to the level of any other physical or economic threat to the country.

In 2009 Obama stressed that networks handling data for commerce, energy production and military operations are a “strategic national asset” to be protected at all costs, says the Post.

While Schmidt spends more time with his family and pursues teaching in the cyber field, his duties will be picked up by Michael Daniel, chief of the White House budget office’s intelligence branch.

Daniel has handled cybersecurity issues for the past 10 of 17 years he’s worked at the Office of Management and Budget. Daniels, 41, has been key to shaping intelligence budgets and intelligence reforms after the 2001 terrorist attacks.
