FBI agent Daphne Hearn is heading south — actually just a bit south — to head up the San Diego FBI office.
Hearn, who has served as special agent in charge of the administrative division in Los Angeles, succeeds Keith Slotter, who is retiring after 25 years.
Hearn, a Kansas City, Mo. native, began her FBI career in 1991. She started out in Buffalo and got involved in an organized crime investigation into an international illegal gambling operation with links to the mob in several cities, the FBI said.
In May 1998, she was went off to the Chicago division where she worked organized crime involving the town of Cicero, Ill.
The following year, she was elevated to the Organized Crime Section of the Criminal Investigative Division at FBI Headquarters, the FBI said.
From there she became an assistant inspector with the Office of Inspection at headquarters before heading off to Kansas City as a supervisory special agent.
In November 2005, she was named assistant section chief in the FBI’s International Operations Division. About two years later, she was promoted to assistant special agent in charge of the Investigative Services Branch at the Washington Field Office.
A year later, she was named special assistant to FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III.
In 2009, she was assigned to her current post in Los Angeles.
