Craig Fair has been named the special agent in charge of the San Francisco Field Office after serving there as the deputy special agent in charge for the past three years.

Fair’s career with the FBI began at the San Francisco Field Office in 1998, serving as a special agent working counterintelligence matters. He was promoted to supervisory special agent in 2015, overseing a counterintelligence squad.

In 2008, Mr. Fair began serving as a unit chief in the Counterintelligence Division at FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., overseeing the bureau’s domestic and extraterritorial investigations and operations countering foreign intelligence collection matters. In 2011, he became acting section chief of Clandestine Services before returning to San Francisco as the assistant special agent in charge of the Counterterrorism Branch. 

Fair oversaw San Francisco’s counterterrorism program, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, the Special Weapons and Tactics Program, and several other programs.

In 2013, Fair returned to FBI headquarters, serving as section chief of the Executive Staff Section of the National Security Branch (NSB). In addition, he served as the special assistant to the NSB executive assistant director. 

In 2014, Fair became deputy assistant director of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate, leading the FBI’s efforts in preventing, countering, and investigating threats of terrorism or proliferation involving chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive weapons.

In 2016, Fair returned to San Francisco to serve again as the assistant special agent in charge of the Counterterrorism Program before he was named the deputy special agent in charge in 2017.

Fair received a Bachelor of Arts in political economics from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pa, and a Master of Arts in criminal justice from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.

The FBI is working with local investigators to determine whether there’s a link between the shooting deaths of two law enforcement officers in California.

A suspect in the deadly, ambush shooting of a Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office deputy on Saturday was arrested and wounded in a shootout with officers in Santa Cruz. The suspect has been identified as Steven Carrillo, 32, an active duty sergeant at Travis Air Force Base, CNN reports.

Now the FBI is teaming up with local police to determine whether that shooting was connected to another one on May 29, when a federal security officer was fatally shot in Oakland.

“The investigation into the incident in Ben Lomond, Calif. is ongoing,” the FBI’s San Francisco office told CNN in a statement. “We are working with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department to determine a possible motive and/or links to other crimes committed in the Bay Area, to include the shooting of the FPS officers in Oakland.”

Carrillo is accused of fatally shooting Sgt. Damon Gutzwiller and injuring another deputy in an ambush with a rifle and multiple improvised devices.

On May 29, Federal Protective Services Officer Dave Patrick Underwood was fatally shot while guarding the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building.

Both shootings involved a white van.
