Steven Calvery will retire from his role as director of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency after 10 years of service focused on post-9/11 protection and security missions, DoD News reported Friday.
Terri Moon Cronk writes Calvery currently leads efforts to maintain the safety of 25,000 people in the Pentagon and 30,000 DoD employees deployed at facilities across the Washington metropolitan region.
Calvery previously worked for the U.S. Secret Service for 21 years and served on the security detail of former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, according to the report.
The four-decade federal service veteran managed the Secret Service’s training academy before he joined the Treasury Department as a senior law enforcement adviser and later moved to the Interior Department, where he took national security roles to handle post-9/11 issues.
Calvery established the post-9/11 security screening infrastructure on the National Mall prior to becoming a PFPA director, Cronk reports.
