The U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday announced that the new acting administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration will be Robert W. Patterson, a career DEA official who started with the agency in 1988.

Patterson – the principal deputy administrator of the DEA since November 2016 – replaces outgoing DEA head Chuck Rosenberg, who tendered his resignation last week.
