Janet Kamerman Named Assistant Director of FBI’s Training Division
Will Continue to Serve as Associate Executive Assistant Director of Human Resources

Director Robert S. Mueller, III has named Janet L. Kamerman assistant director (AD) of the FBI’s Training Division. In January 2009, Ms. Kamerman began serving as associate executive assistant director (AEAD) of the Human Resources Branch. Since that time, she has led the Bureau-wide Leadership Development Program initiative to review FBI training and the integration of Human Resources processes and systems for all categories of supervision, management, and leadership. In her new role, she will assume additional responsibilities for all FBI training programs, including the new agent and intelligence analyst training programs, as well as the National Academy, which provides training to federal, state, local, and international police executives.

“While retaining her stewardship of the FBI’s Leadership Development Program as AEAD of Human Resources, Janet will help move forward the Bureau’s training programs—for both our own employees and our local, state, and international partners. Her newly combined responsibilities will strengthen the FBI’s development opportunities for all employees to enhance the achievement of our mission,” said Director Mueller.

Ms. Kamerman entered on duty as a special agent with the FBI in July 1989. Upon completion of training at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, she was assigned to the Houston Division. While there, she worked a variety of investigative matters, to include organized crime/drugs, international terrorism, and white collar crime. She was promoted to supervisory special agent in the Houston Division, where she supervised a drug squad.

In 2002, Ms. Kamerman transferred to FBI Headquarters as a supervisory special agent and unit chief in the Human Resources Division. She was later promoted to assistant special agent in charge overseeing administrative matters at the Washington Field Office. In 2005, Ms. Kamerman served as special assistant to Director Mueller, providing counsel on a variety of policy and administrative matters. In May 2007, Ms. Kamerman was named as special agent in charge (SAC) of the Honolulu Division. She served as SAC until December 2008, when she returned to FBI Headquarters as AEAD of the Human Resources Branch.

Prior to joining the FBI, Ms. Kamerman served in the U.S. Army as a military police officer.
