Baltimore Fbi Office Chief Takes New Job

July 22, 2009|By Tricia Bishop

The head of Baltimore's FBI field office has left to become the assistant director of the bureau's Inspection Division. Amy Jo Lyons, who was named Baltimore's special agent in charge in April 2008, is now responsible for internal investigations within the agency and ensuring that its programs work and are in line with FBI goals, Director Robert S. Mueller III said in a statement. Lyons was a special agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration before joining the FBi in 1990. Since then, she's investigated drug-money laundering operations, Italian organized crime and international terrorism and terrorists, including Zacharias Moussaoui, the only person tried by the U.S. in connection with the Sept. 11 attacks. She became an inspector within the Inspection Division in 2006, and was promoted to chief inspector in January 2008, shortly before coming to Baltimore. No replacement has been named for the local FBI division.
