David LeValley Named Special Agent in Charge of the Atlanta Division

FBI Director James B. Comey has named David LeValley as the special agent in charge of the Atlanta Division. Mr. LeValley most recently served as a special agent in charge of the Criminal Division of the Washington Field Office.

Mr. LeValley entered on duty with the FBI in 1996 and was first assigned to the New York Field Office, where he investigated Colombian and Caribbean drug trafficking and money laundering violations on a joint task force with the New York City Police Department. While serving at FBI Headquarters, Mr. LeValley worked to establish the FBI’s Mara-Salvatrucha-13 (MS-13) National Gang Task Force in response to rising concerns about the proliferation of violent transnational gangs, specifically MS-13.

Throughout his career, Mr. LeValley has held leadership positions in the Criminal Investigative Division and Washington Field Office.

Mr. LeValley will assume this new role in November.
