Robert B. Danley has been named the new chief patrol agent of CBP’s Detroit Sector.

Danley succeeds Douglas Harrison, who retired after leading the sector for five years. 

Danley’s career with CBP began in 2001, when he entered the U.S. Border Patrol Academy. His first assignment was at Brackettville Station in the Del Rio Scgtor in Texas. 

Since then, Danley has held a variety of leadership positions on the northern and southern borders, the Border Patrol Academy and USBP headquarters. His positions included patrol agent in charge, associate chief and acting deputy chief. 

He’s earned numerous distinctions during his career. He’s a two-time recipient of the CBP Commissioner’s Award for Mission Integration and Partner and Stakeholder Engagement. He also received the Secretary, Department of Homeland Security Meritorious Service Silver Medal for Leadership for his creation of migrant pathways in 2020. 

Danley graduated from northern Arizona University with a bachelor’s of science in justice studies. 

The Detroit Sector has five Border Patrol stations along 863 miles of the border with Canada and encompasses Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Indiana. 

Biden Administration Proposes New FBI Headquarters in Suburbs

By Steve Neavling

The Biden administration has revived long-stalled plans to build a new FBI headquarters in suburban Maryland or Virginia. 

In its 2023 budget request released Monday, the White House said the administration “recognizes the critical need for a new FBI headquarters” and that the current J. Edgar Hoover building “can no longer support the long-term mission of the FBI.”

“The Administration has begun a multi-year process of constructing a modern, secure suburban facility from which the FBI can continue its mission to protect the American people,” the administration wrote. “During the next year, FBI and GSA will work to identify a location to construct a Federally- owned, modern and secure facility for at least 7,500 personnel in the suburbs.”

The FBI has been searching for a new headquarters for years, but funding problems and the Trump administration delayed the project. Trump had called for the headquarters, which is a stone’s throw from his Washington D.C. hotel, to be built downtown, rather than in the suburbs. 

The current headquarters is cramped and outdated, the FBI says.
