New FBI chief for Sacramento coming from Los Angeles office

The FBI has named a veteran agent from Los Angeles to take over as special agent in charge of the Sacramento field office.

Special Agent Sean Ragan has been heading up the criminal division in the Los Angeles field office and is expected to assume his new post in late July.

Ragan joined the bureau in 1996, starting his career in the San Francisco office, where he focused on gangs, organized crime and violent crime. Ragan served on the SWAT team there and also had been posted in Atlanta.

Ragan succeeds Monica Miller, who headed the Sacramento office from 2013 until leaving in April to accept an appointment as deputy chief of the homeland security division in the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services.
