FBI announces new assistant director for investigative technology division


Written by

Todd McCall was named assistant director of the FBI’s Operational Technology Division, the bureau announced Thursday.

A longtime G-man, McCall most recently worked as special agent in charge of the Memphis Division. He joined the FBI’s Dallas Division in 1990 and served on its Evidence Response Team, working on the investigations for the Oklahoma City bombing and Sept. 11 plane crash in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, according to an FBI statement.

McCall has held leadership positions at the FBI Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia, and in the Jackson, Tennessee, Resident Agency — as well as at the Operational Technology Division.

Also located in Quantico, the Operational Technology Division develops the technology used by the intelligence agency, ranging from electronic surveillance, digital forensics and communications.

He will replace Stephen Richardson, who held the position for about two years.
