WASHINGTON — Amy Jo Lyons, a New Jersey native who headed up the Baltimore FBI, has been named Assistant Director of the FBI Inspection Division.

She replaces Kevin Perkins, who is now assistant director of the Criminal Investigative Division at headquarters.

“In her new role, Amy will be responsible for oversight of internal investigations and the evaluation of FBI programs to ensure their effectiveness and compliance with FBI objectives, governing laws, rules, regulations, and policies,” FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III said in a prepared statement. “Her previous experience in the Inspection Division, coupled with her years of operational work in the field, makes her an excellent fit for this position.”

Lyons joined the FBI in 1990 and was first assigned to the New Haven Division. Six years later, she went to the International Training and Assistance Program at the FBI Academy. After that, she was assigned to the Latin American Unit in the Criminal Investigative Division’s Organized Crime/Drug Section at FBI Headquarters, according to the FBI.

In February 1999, she went to New York where she headed up a squad focusing on the Columbo crime family. She eventually became an assistant special agent in charge in the Special Operations Branch and in April 2008 was named  special agent in charge of the Baltimore Division.

Before joining the FBI, she was a DEA agent in Newark.
