CBP Removes Head of Internal Affair in Search of More Aggressive Watchdog

The head of internal affairs at Customs and Border Protection was removed from his position Monday following criticism that he wasn’t aggressive enough with agents accused of using inappropriate force, the Los Angeles Times reports.

James F. Tomsheck, whose job is to root out corruption among the federal government’s largest law enforcement workforce, has been given a temporary assignment.

In the meantime, the CBP asked the FBI to assign a senior agent to investigate the abuse, in what the Times described as an unusual move.

The shakeup comes after mounting criticism about widespread abuses at the county’s borders.
