About SAC Kristi Johnson

In September 2019, SAC Kristi K. Johnson was named the special agent in charge of the Omaha Field Office, covering Nebraska and Iowa.  This is Kristi's second assignment in Omaha, first as Chief Division Head (and the office's first female supervisor), and most recently to head up the Field Office.  In this role, Kristi is one of approximately 7 women SACs in the FBIs 56 Field Offices.  In the Fall of 2019, our host, Janyne, had the privelege of learning from SAC Johnson during an 8 week FBI Citizens Academy.  


Director Christopher Wray has named Kristi Koons Johnson as the special agent in charge of the Omaha Field Office in Nebraska. Most recently, she served as a section chief in the Criminal Investigative Division at FBI Headquarters in Washington.

Ms. Johnson joined the FBI as a special agent in 1999 and was assigned to the Chicago Field Office, where she spent a decade investigating organized crime.  She was promoted to Supervisory Special Agent and led a public corruption squad.  In 2010, Ms. Johnson was named the Chief Division Counsel at the Omaha office.  In that position, she provided legal advice about investigations and FBI policy for the office.

In 2014, Ms. Johnson was promoted to Unit Chief in the FBI’s Internal Policy Office at Headquarters, managing the day-to-day operations of the office that coordinates, reviews, publishes, and circulates Bureau policies and forms.  In 2016, Johnson was named the Assistant Special Agent in Charge of national security issues at the Omaha office.

Ms. Johnson was promoted to Chief of the Transnational Organized Crime Section of the Criminal Investigative Division as Headquarters in 2018.  The section manages investigations into—and collecting intelligence about—transnational criminal organizations.  These criminal organizations are engaged in all manners of crime, including human, weapons, and drug trafficking; money laundering; cultural theft; and different types of fraud.

In addition, Ms. Johnson has served as a trainer at the International Law Enforcement academies in San Salvador, El Salvador, and in Skopje, Macedonia

Ms. Johnson earned a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and a law degree from the University of Detroit-Mercy.
