Will new Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy tighten the agency’s alcohol rules?
Tony Schiena, a security expert who operates the private military intelligence firm MOSAIC and works with several government law enforcement agencies including the FBI, says accountability is enforced so strongly at the bureau “that everyone is looking over their own shoulder trying to make sure they haven’t done anything wrong or worried that a colleague will report them if they have.”
At the FBI, he said, “there is accountability for everything and they are also very competitive. If you break the law and you’re not following protocol, it’s reported.”
“Post-9/11 things have become a lot stricter in the handling of their agents,” he said.
