Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske will retire in December, he revealed toThe Arizona Republic during an interview in Phoenix on Monday.

In just over two years on the job, Kerlikowske has been instrumental in Customs and Border Protection changing its use-of-force policies, making those policies and other controversial reports public and providing at least limited information when a Border Patrol or Customs officer used deadly force.

Kerlikowske was appointed just after an investigation by The Republic found that Border Patrol agents and CBP officers had been involved in nearly 50 use-of-force deaths since 2005, with many of the cases cloaked in secrecy. The Border Patrol is a division of CBP.
