INDIANAPOLIS — FBI Director Christopher Wray has named Paul Keenan as the special agent in charge of the Indianapolis field office, the agency announced Tuesday.
Keenan most recently was chief of the Investigative and Operations Support Section in the Critical Incident Response Group in Washington. Among other responsibilities, he led the National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime, which is comprised of five Behavioral Analysis Units, popularized on the CBS drama “Criminal Minds.”
He joined the FBI as a special agent in 2003 and investigated violent gangs in Los Angeles. Six years later, he was promoted to supervisor and placed in charge of the Violent Gang Squad and later the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Squad investigating Mexican drug cartels.
In 2012, Keenan was appointed as the assistant legal attaché in Panama City, representing the FBI in Panama, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua. While there, he assisted in the capture of two FBI Ten Most Wanted fugitives. In 2014, he was selected as the supervisory senior special agent of the Chattanooga office in Tennessee. During his time in Tennessee, he led the response and investigation of a homegrown violent extremist attack on two military installations.
He also worked in the Miami office.
Before joining the FBI, Mr. Keenan served as a special agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration. He holds a bachelor's degree in political science from Indiana University.
