    A leading federal law enforcement official in Michigan has landed a promotion. 

    The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced last month that Timothy R. Slater, who has been special agent in charge of the Detroit FBI field office since 2018, has been named assistant director in charge of the agency’s Washington, D.C., office, according to a statement. 

    Slater has moved around the country as a 20-year veteran of the bureau, including a prior stint in the Flint satellite office in 2003 and stops in cities such as Denver and Knoxville, Tenn.
