FBI Director Robert Mueller III sprinkled a little wit and humor in a speech he delivered Monday during the dedication of the new $40 million, three-story FBI building in Louisville just south of I-64.

“Having had a chance to tour the new space, I am doubtful that any of you will request a transfer to Headquarters anytime soon,” Mueller said. ” Actually, I am thinking of requesting a transfer to Louisville.”

“Kentucky is home to ‘the fastest two minutes in sports.’ In that spirit, I will keep my remarks brief. But first, I would like to recognize some of the many individuals who guided this project every step of the way.”

He went on to thank the people involved in building the facility and then said:

“The Louisville office was permanently established in June of 1935. The main challenges to law enforcement at that time were bank robbers and violent gangsters, who made a habit of crossing state lines to evade local law enforcement. This was captured well in the recent movie Public Enemies, though it is a safe bet that most of the real-life criminals did not look like Johnny Depp.”

“The threats we face today have changed dramatically. Today, the agents, task force officers, and analysts working inside this building investigate everything from cyber crime to organized crime; from public corruption to espionage; and from violent gangs to terrorism. As threats have evolved, so has our approach to law enforcement.

“It has become clear that no one agency, community, or even country can prevent crime and terrorism on its own. We must sit at one table. We must work as one team. This new building allows us to do just that.”
