MILWAUKEE (AP) — The FBI is getting a new head of its Milwaukee office.
FBI Director James Comey on Monday named R. Justin Tolomeo special agent in charge of the bureau’s Milwaukee Division.
Tolomeo most recently served as an inspector in the Inspection Division at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. He joined the FBI in 1998 and was first assigned to the Chicago Division, where he worked on criminal cases.
In 2001, Tolomeo transferred to the New York Division and investigated drug violations. Following the Sept. 11 terror attacks, he was assigned to international terrorism and intelligence matters. In 2007, he was appointed as assistant legal attache in London, overseeing counterterrorism efforts.
Tolomeo replaces Robert J. Shields Jr., who retires from the FBI on July 31. He starts his new job in September.
