FBI to Consolidate Field Offices in Mississippi
The FBI is consolidating two offices in Mississippi into a larger one in Oxford as part of a budget-cutting move, according to the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal.
But the move – relocating Tupelo and Greenville into Oxford –won’t affect staffing, an FBI spokeswoman told the Daily Journal.
“The consolidation will not affect the number of FBI resources in the northern part of the state, within the state of Mississippi or in the FBI Jackson Division,” said spokeswoman Deborah Madden, who declined to divulge whether other FBI offices were closing.
Tupelo’s office first opened in the mid-1960s to address the increasing activity of the Ku Klux Klan.
