SALT LAKE CITY — Mary Frances Rook has been named the new head of the FBI's Salt Lake City division.
The appointment by FBI Director Robert S. Mueller marks the first time in Salt Lake's history that a woman has headed up the office.
Rook began her career with the FBI in 1984 and most recently was the special agent-in-charge at the FBI's Anchorage, Alaska, bureau. She has also worked in Los Angeles where she investigated money laundering and drug trafficking cases.
The Salt Lake City division of the FBI oversees operations in Utah, Idaho and Montana. Rook arrived in Salt Lake City this week to begin her new job.
Rook, a Montana native, has a Bachelor of Science degree in zoology from Colorado State University. In January 2013, she celebrated 29 years with the FBI.
