Photograph of Director Robert MuellerDIRECTOR ROBERT MUELLER AND THE FBI

On September 4, 2001, Robert S. Mueller, III became the 6th Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, one week into his term, he became responsible for spearheading what is perhaps the most extensive reorganization the FBI has experienced since its conception. By May 2002, he articulated ten top FBI priorities: protecting the U.S. from terrorist attacks, from foreign intelligence operations, and from cyber-based attacks and high-technology crimes; combating public corruption at all levels; protecting civil rights; combating international and national organized crime, major white-collar crime, and significant violent crime; supporting our law enforcement and intelligence partners; and upgrading FBI technology. "While we remain committed to our other important national security and law enforcement responsibilities, the prevention of terrorism takes precedence in our thinking and planning; in our hiring and staffing; in our training and technologies; and, most importantly, in our investigations," Director Mueller has said.

In speaking about the FBI, he stated: "We have the best investigators in the world in this institution and some of the best people here at headquarters that carry me. The challenge is to get them the tools that they need to become even better. And that is what we are working on... The joy of it is that you are doing it for the country, you are doing it for other FBI agents, you are doing it for the community, and you are doing it for the people. That is tremendously rewarding."
