Like many graduates, John Simpson saw his law degree as an opportunity to pursue his passion for public service. A member of the U. S. Secret Service in Boston during law school, he was named Special Agent of the Presidential Protective Division in 1978, and by 1981 was appointed Director of the Secret Service, serving 11 years under Presidents Reagan and Bush. After retiring from the Secret Service, Simpson served two terms as Commissioner of the U.S. Parole Commission, and was the first American to be elected President of INTERPOL.
