The federal Homeland Security Investigations office in Detroit has a new boss. It’s Steve Francis, a 20-year veteran of federal law enforcement.

Francis had been acting special agent in charge since last year when the old boss, Marlon Miller, assumed a similar role in the Homeland Security Investigations office in Philadelphia.

The Detroit office, which is part of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, oversees Michigan and Ohio. It protects national security and enforces immigration and customs laws.

“As a native of this region, I’m honored to serve my community in this capacity,” Francis said in a prepared statement.

He became deputy special agent in charge in 2015. In that role, he had operational and administrative oversight of five investigative divisions comprising 20 groups and six offices.
