FBI Jacksonville Announces New Criminal Division Leadership
JACKSONVILLE, FL—Rachel L. Rojas, special agent in charge of the FBI Jacksonville Division, announces the selection of Mark A. Hoffman as the assistant special agent in charge (ASAC) of the FBI Jacksonville criminal branch. Mr. Hoffman will oversee the violent crimes against children, cyber, civil rights, violent crime, and financial crime programs, among others, for the 40-county territory. Mr. Hoffman replaces Carlton L. Peeples, who was recently promoted to the FBI Inspection Division.
Mr. Hoffman previously served as a supervisory special agent for the FBI Phoenix Division where he oversaw investigations into violent crimes, including bank robbery; Indian Country crime; airport matters; violent crimes against children; and human intelligence (HUMINT) matters for the state of Arizona. Mr. Hoffman brings more than 29 years of military and law enforcement experience to the ASAC position. He joined the FBI in 1998 and has since held assignments with FBI Detroit, FBI Dallas, and at FBI Headquarters in Washington D.C. within the counterterrorism and national security programs. Prior to joining the FBI, Mr. Hoffman served as an Air Force officer at Eglin Air Force Base in Okaloosa County, Florida.
“I’m excited to return to Florida and serve the people of this great state,” said Hoffman. “I’ve dedicated my life to federal public service and will leverage my knowledge and experience to concentrate on forward leaning initiatives that protect citizens of all ages from criminal matters including cybercrimes, civil rights, and public corruption. I highly value community partnerships and collaborative efforts with local, state, and federal agencies and will strive to keep our resources poised to maintain mission readiness.”
