Statement from Secretary Kelly on Director Clancy’s Retirement

Office of the Press Secretary
Contact: 202-282-8010

WASHINGTON – On behalf of the entire Department of Homeland Security, I thank U.S. Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy for his decades of selfless service. During his tenure with the Secret Service, Director Clancy brought a wealth of experience, knowledge and heart to an agency entrusted with one of the most challenging duties of law enforcement – protecting from harm our nation and those who lead it.

Though his leadership and wisdom will be missed, I am pleased that Director Clancy has offered to help guide DHS and the Administration in transitioning to a new agency director.

Director Clancy has my deepest gratitude and profound respect for his 30 years of dedicated service to our country.
