Jennifer C. Boone Named Special Agent in Charge of the Baltimore Field Office

Director Christopher Wray has named Jennifer C. Boone as the special agent in charge of the Baltimore Field Office. Most recently, Ms. Boone served as a special agent in charge at the Los Angeles Field Office.

Ms. Boone started her career as an FBI special agent in 1997, and was assigned to the Los Angeles Field Office, where she worked multiple investigative programs. She was later transferred to FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., where she served in both the Counterterrorism and Counterintelligence divisions. For a time, she was detailed to the U.S. Senate. In 2009, she was promoted to a supervisory special agent and led a counterintelligence squad at the Washington Field Office.

Ms. Boone then served as a Director in Intelligence Programs for the National Security Council at the White House. After that assignment, she was promoted to an assistant special agent in charge at the Philadelphia Field Office, overseeing the Counterintelligence and Cyber Branch.

She returned to Washington as section chief of the Counterproliferation Center in early 2016, before being named deputy assistant director in the Counterintelligence Division at FBI Headquarters. In 2018, Ms. Boone was named the special agent in charge of Cyber and Counterintelligence at the Los Angeles Field Office.

Ms. Boone earned a bachelor’s of science degree in foreign service and a master’s degree from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. She is also a certified FBI negotiator.
