Official FBI Bio

Mr. Casey entered on duty as a special agent of the FBI in 1987. Upon completion of training at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, he was assigned to the Detroit field office, where he primarily worked international terrorism and undercover investigations. In 1995, he was promoted to a supervisory special agent position in the Counterterrorism Division at FBI Headquarters. In that role, Mr. Casey assisted with response to incidents such as the Oklahoma City bombing and the explosion of TWA 800.

In late 1997, Mr. Casey was assigned to the Indianapolis field office as the Counterterrorism and Counterintelligence Supervisor. Immediately after 9/11, he returned to FBI Headquarters to assist with increasing the capacity of the Counterterrorism Division. He also traveled to the FBI’s Legal Attaché office in Manila to assist with leads related to 9/11 and al Qaeda.

In 2002, he was named Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Cincinnati field office, and served as acting SAC for six months during his tenure there. During 2004 and 2005, he was assigned as a Director of Intelligence Programs on the National Security Council at the White House, where he focused on intelligence community reform and the development of the Bush Administration’s response to the 9/11 Commission and WMD Commission reports. Thereafter, Mr. Casey served as Section Chief of the Counterintelligence Division’s Eurasian Section at FBI Headquarters.

Mr. Casey holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in political science from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia; a Master of Arts Degree in criminology from Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Indiana; and a Graduate Diploma in International Relations from the University of London. Prior to joining the FBI, he served as a police officer in Arlington, Virginia, and worked for the U.S. Department of State. He and his wife of 25 years have four children.

07/02/2008. James Casey, a 21-year veteran of the FBI, has been named Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the FBI’s Jacksonville field office. Director Robert S. Mueller, III appointed him to this position to replace SAC Michael J. Folmar, who is returning to FBI Headquarters as Deputy Assistant Director of the Training Division. Most recently, Mr. Casey served as Section Chief of the Counterintelligence Division’s Eurasian Section.

Complaint of “Retaliatory Actions”

“The high standards of the FBI do not allow for anything less than the truth.  It’s time for the supervisors who retaliated against Jane Turner, and other whistleblowers for that matter, to be held accountable.  This jury verdict is vindication for Agent Turner.  She had the courage to stand up alone, in the face of resistance, and say what happened was wrong.”

On February 5, 2007 a federal court jury unanimously held that the FBI illegally retaliated against Jane Turner, a 25-year veteran FBI agent, and awarded her $565,000.00 in damages.

Among the FBI officials who participated in the retaliatory actions against Ms. Turner were James Burrus, the current Assistant Director of the FBI’s Criminal Division and James Casey, a high level “Section Chief” in the FBI’s counterintelligence program.
