FBI Director Visits Omaha Field Office, Addressing Cyber Threats and Violent Crime

This week, FBI Director Christopher Wray visited the FBI’s Omaha Field Office, which covers Nebraska and Iowa, and met with local law enforcement partners in both states. The Director discussed combatting violent crime in the area, violence against law enforcement, the value of task forces, and expressed his appreciation for their continued support and collaboration.

During the trip, Director Wray also participated in a press conference and addressed members of the local media to affirm the FBI’s continued commitment to address the growing cyber threats in the area and those facing the agriculture sector.

In his remarks, Director Wray said, “If the agriculture sector ever suffers a serious cyber disruption, the effects will be felt across the country, and across the spectrum—from the farms in your states to dinner tables across America. But by working together, we can shut down malicious activities and improve our collective ability to protect against the cyber threat.”

This visit marks Director Wray’s second trip to each of the FBI’s 56 field offices during his tenure.

Director Wray makes regular visits to the FBI field offices and legal attachés to meet with employees, receive briefs on local issues and crime trends as well as to collaborate with partners.
