Thomas J. Browne has been named Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the FBI’s Little Rock Division. Director Robert S. Mueller, III appointed him to this position to replace SAC William C. Temple, who will retire in May 2008. Most recently, Mr. Browne served as the Section Chief of the Intelligence, N-DEx, and Global Operations Section at the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division in Clarksburg, West Virginia. From December 2007 to March 2008, Mr. Browne was also the Acting Deputy Assistant Director for the Policy, Administration, and Liaison Branch at the CJIS Division.

Mr. Browne entered on duty as a special agent with the FBI in August 1985.

In November 2004, Mr. Browne was designated as the Assistant Special in Charge (ASAC) of the Little Rock Division.
