Kristi Koons Johnson has been named assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office.

Johnson became an FBI special agent in 1999, working for a decade in the Chicago Field Office, where she investigated organized crime and public corruption. In 2007, she began leading a public corruption squad as a supervisory special agent. 

Johnson was tapped in 2010 to serve as the chief division counsel for the Omaha office, where she provided legal advice about investigations and FBI policy.

In 2014, another promotion brought Johnson to FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., where she was unit chief in the bureau’s Internal Policy Office, managing day-to-day operations. 

In 2016, she returned to the Omaha Office as the assistant special agent in charge of national security, cyber, and intelligence matters.

In 2018, Johnson was back at headquarters serving as chief of the Transnational Organized Crime Section of the Criminal Investigative Division, which manages investigations and collects intelligence of transnational criminal organizations.

In 2019, Johnson was promoted to special agent in charge of the Omaha office, which is responsible for operations and personnel across Iowa and Nebraska. Her focus was on preparing for crises by establishing partnerships with private sector and community partners, and enhancing relationships with federal, state and local agencies.

Johnson also has served as a trainer at the International Law Enforcement Academy in San Salvador, El Salvador, and in Skopje, Macedonia. In addition, she has served in temporary duty positions in Moscow and Athens, Greece, as the assistant legal attaché.

The FBI field offices in Omaha and Knoxville have new leaders.

Kristi Koons Johnson has been named the special agent in charge of the Omaha Field Office, which covers Nebraska and Iowa.

At the Knoxville Field Office in Tennessee, the new special agent in charge is Joseph E. Carrico.

Johnson had been serving as a section chief in the Criminal Investigative Division at FBI headquarters in Washington D.C. She joined the FBI as a special agent in 1999, serving in the Chicago Field Office, where she investigated public corruption and organized crime for a decade.

Johnson is no newcomer to the Omaha office. In 2010, she served as the chief division counsel for the field office, providing legal advice about investigations and FBI policy. After a stint as unit chief in the FBI’s Internal Policy Office at headquarters, Johnson returned to Omaha in 2016 as assistant special agent in charge of national security, cyber, and intelligence issues for the field office.

Johnson left the Omaha office in 2018 to serve as chief of the Transnational Organized Crime Section of the Criminal Investigative Division at FBI headquarters.

Before Carrico took over the Knoxville Field Office, he had served as a deputy assistant director in the Operational Technology Division at FBI headquarters in Washington D.C.

Carrico began working as a special agent with the FBI in 1999 with an assignment to the Dallas Field Office, where he investigated securities and bank fraud and was a member of the Evidence Response Team. In 2005, Johnson was promoted to supervisory special agent and moved to the Human Resources Division at FBI headquarters.

In 2007, Carrico became an assistant inspector in the Inspection Division before returning to the Human Resources Division as chief of the Special Agent Recruitment and Selection Unit in 2008.

A year later, Carrico served as the supervisory senior resident agent in charge of the Covington Resident Agency in Kentucky, which is part of the Louisville Field Office. In 2011, he again returned to the Inspection Division as a special assistant to the assistant director.

In 2013, Carrico began serving as the assistant special agent in charge of the Administrative Branch of the Chicago Field Office before being promoted to chief of the Digital Forensics and Analysis Section of the Operational Technology Division three years later.

In 2018, Carrico became deputy assistant director in the division, leading digital and forensic analysis, computer network exploitation, and lawful electronic surveillance.
