Jay Greenberg Named Special Agent in Charge of the St. Louis Field Office

Director Christopher Wray has named Jay Greenberg as the special agent in charge of the St. Louis Field Office. He most recently served as a deputy assistant director in the Criminal Investigative Division at FBI Headquarters in Washington.

Mr. Greenberg joined the FBI as a special agent in 2005 and was assigned to the Washington Field Office, where he investigated civil rights, public corruption, and government fraud. In 2012, he was promoted to supervisory special agent and transferred to CID’s Public Corruption Unit at Headquarters.

In 2013, Mr. Greenberg was assigned to lead a white-collar crime squad in the Fort Worth Resident Agency of the Dallas Field Office. He was promoted in 2017 to assistant special agent in charge of the Chicago Field Office’s new Resident Agency Branch. Later in 2017, after a reorganization in Chicago, he was named the ASAC of the office’s Criminal Enterprise Branch.

Mr. Greenberg was promoted to section chief in the Violent Crimes Section in CID at Headquarters in 2019. He played a key leadership role in the FBI’s Operation LeGend, a coordinated initiative across law enforcement to address a surge in violent crime. He also helped reallocate resources to the Oklahoma City Field Office after a Supreme Court decision increased the FBI’s investigative responsibilities in Indian Country in Oklahoma.

In 2020, Mr. Greenberg was promoted to deputy assistant director of CID, where he led sections that deal with financial crimes, public corruption, civil rights, and the FBI’s covert operations.
