Ex-FBI agent Thomas F. Minton III will head up the Pennsylvania Governor’s Office of Homeland Security, the governor’s office announced.
Minton, 52, served most of his 22 years with the FBI investigating national security matters with a focus on terrorism, according to a press release. Minton was involved in key investigations such as the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City, the bombing of the American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and the 9/11 attacks on America.
“We are fortunate to have someone of Tom Minton’s caliber, character and expertise to direct our Office of Homeland Security,” Governor Tom Corbett said. “The addition of Tom to our team of leaders in public safety will ensure the security of Pennsylvanians for years to come.”
