FBI Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (DIOG)

The FBI’s Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (DIOG) was revised and updated based on comments and feedback received since the original DIOG was issued on December 16, 2008. This new version was approved by Director Mueller on October 15, 2011. The changes primarily clarify and enhance the definitions of terms and procedures used in the original DIOG. Each change has been carefully looked at and considered against the backdrop of the tools our employees need to accomplish their mission, the possible risks associated with the use of those tools, and the controls that are in place. The DIOG was first issued to help implement the new Attorney General’s Guidelines for Domestic FBI Operations that were issued earlier in 2008. Those guidelines had reconciled a number of previously separate guidelines, the first of which had been issued in 1976. The most recent version of the Guide is the version update of 10/16/2013, which was posted here on 9/14/2016.

Head of FBI’s NY office, Joseph Demarest, reassigned during probe over alleged affair with staffer | NY DAILY NEWS | MAR 20, 2010

New York FBI agents are not exactly distraught over the reassignment of their office’s director over a probe into his relationship with a G-woman lover, sources told the Daily News Friday.

Joseph Demarest was temporarily reassigned to Washington headquarters while the Justice Department‘s inspector general reviews the matter, sources said.

“The New York office is celebrating Demarest’s demise because he bullied subordinates but let the New York Police Department bully the Bureau,” said a retired senior FBI official.

Inspectors are trying to determine how truthful Demarest was about the alleged relationship when he was questioned during an internal review in January, sources said.

Demarest, who was divorced, allegedly gave a different account of the relationship than did the woman, who multiple FBI sources identified as special agent Teresa Carlson.

Carlson, an intelligence and counterterror agent with a law degree, did not report directly to Demarest and sought a promotion to the Washington office, sources said.

It is Demarest who is being scrutinized, not his girlfriend, sources said.



The FBI: No Margin for Love? | HUFFINGTON POST | MAY 22, 2010

Does the Federal Bureau of Investigation frown on romance?

Or does love cause some New York agents to lose their way?

Joe Demarest, the Bureau’s Big Apple top gun, is the latest G-man to have his life complicated by matters of the heart.

In January, 2009, FBI Director Robert Mueller thought so highly of the high-strung Demarest, a lean, crew-cut Delta Force lookalike, that the Bureau lured him out of retirement to head its prestigious New York office.

He gave up his lucrative position as Goldman Sachs’ Director of Security for his FBI dream job.

Today, barely a year later, Demarest is on what the Bureau describes as “temporary assignment” in Washington.

FBI spokesman Rich Kolko said last week that Demarest was in D.C., helping to develop something called Strategy Performance Sessions, or “COMPSTAT LITE,” which sounds like an abbreviated FBI version of the NYPD’s well-known computerized crime strategies.

But sources say it was love that bounced Demarest from his New York job.

Sources say the Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating whether Demarest used his influence as a senior manager to get his FBI agent girlfriend promoted.

The agent, Teresa Carlson, is described as a looker — slim, blonde and blue-eyed. She headed the white collar section of the New York office’s Criminal Division with eight or nine squads reporting to her. After a lateral transfer to the Intelligence Division, the FBI promoted her to a job in Washington.

It’s unclear how much influence Demarest had over her career. A source said there was always at least a level of management between them.

Nor is it known when their relationship began. Demarest was described as married in a 2006 press release issued when he was promoted to head the New York office’s Counter-Terrorism Division, one of the Bureau’s most sensitive jobs.

When Mueller persuaded Demarest to come out of retirement to head the New York office in Jan., 2009, he was described as divorced.

Teresa Carlson Named Special Agent in Charge of the Milwaukee Division | FBI NATIONAL PRESS RELEASE | OCT 19, 2011

Director Robert S. Mueller, III named Teresa L. Carlson special agent in charge of the FBI’s Milwaukee Division. Ms. Carlson most recently served as section chief in the Directorate of Intelligence, which is responsible for collecting, producing, and disseminating actionable intelligence that enables the FBI to identify and counter current and emerging threats.

Ms. Carlson is a 19-year veteran of the FBI. She entered on duty as a special agent and was first assigned to the Chicago Division, where she investigated violent crimes and public corruption matters. Ms. Carlson was a case agent for Operation Silver Shovel, an undercover investigation that involved bribery, drug trafficking, and organized crime activity. It resulted in more than 20 convictions, including elected officials.

She was later promoted to the Inspection Division at FBI Headquarters. Ms. Carlson then transferred to the Birmingham Division, where she served as a supervisor in the white-collar crime program.

After serving in the Birmingham Division, Ms. Carlson was appointed assistant special agent in charge (ASAC) of the white-collar crime and cyber programs in the New York Division. While in this role, she oversaw high-profile investigations and subsequently was in charge of the intelligence program for the division.

She returned to FBI Headquarters after working as ASAC in the New York Division. Ms. Carlson worked in the FBI’s National Security Branch, which is responsible for national security matters, including budget matters and liaison with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Congress, and the White House.

Ms. Carlson is from Grand Rapids, Michigan and graduated from Michigan State University. Prior to her career in the FBI, she did legal research for the Michigan Legislature.



ATF’s Milwaukee sting operation marred by mistakes, failures | MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL | JAN 29, 2013

David Salkin unknowingly rented his building at 1220 E. Meinecke Ave. to the ATF, which ran an undercover sting. Burglars broke into the business, ending the operation. Salkin says the ATF owes him $15,000 for damage and unpaid utility bills. The agency has refused to pay.

A store calling itself Fearless Distributing opened early last year on an out-of-the-way street in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood, offering designer clothes, athletic shoes, jewelry and drug paraphernalia.

Those working behind the counter, however, weren’t interested in selling anything.

They were undercover agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives running a storefront sting aimed at busting criminal operations in the city by purchasing drugs and guns from felons.

But the effort to date has not snared any major dealers or taken down a gang. Instead, it resulted in a string of mistakes and failures, including an ATF military-style machine gun landing on the streets of Milwaukee and the agency having $35,000 in merchandise stolen from its store, a Journal Sentinel investigation has found.

When the 10-month operation was shut down after the burglary, agents and Milwaukee police officers who participated in the sting cleared out the store but left behind a sensitive document that listed names, vehicles and phone numbers of undercover agents.

The agency has been on the defensive in recent years following the ill-fated Fast and Furious operation, run out of Arizona, where agents allowed sales of more than 2,000 guns to gun traffickers but then failed to keep track of most of them. Many turned up at crime scenes in Mexico, including two at the site where a U.S. border guard was killed.

And now, in the wake of the school shooting in Connecticut, as President Barack Obama considers new restrictions on guns, the agency is poised to take on additional responsibilities.

The ATF has run storefront stings in other cities, holding news conferences trumpeting results and showing off the guns and drugs seized. In Milwaukee, the operation has been kept quiet.

Residents of the area, tucked between N. Humboldt Blvd. and the Milwaukee River, are angry the ATF secretly drew drug dealers and gun-toting felons to their neighborhood, which is rallying to improve.

Federal authorities said they could not say much about the Milwaukee operation because court cases have not been resolved and the ATF is still seeking suspects.

U.S. Attorney James Santelle, whose office was briefed on plans for the sting, declined to comment on problems in the operation, focusing instead on the number of defendants charged and the 145 guns seized, including three sawed-off shotguns, 10 stolen guns and eight guns with obliterated serial numbers.

Santelle said all federal investigations are not the same and noted in this case four of the defendants are facing long prison terms for being career armed criminals.

“They are plainly a threat to the community,” he said.

“I would expect that the ATF wouldn’t get robbed, that they would have security measures,” he said. “Maybe I watch too many movies. You would think it would be hard to rob an ATF operation.”

Turns out, the ATF has weapons stolen or loses them more frequently than the public might think, according to a 2008 report from the Office of the Inspector General with the U.S. Department of Justice.

In a five-year span from 2002-’07, for example, 76 ATF weapons were stolen, lost or missing, according to the report. That’s nearly double the number compared with the FBI and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, when considering rates per 1,000 agents.

Todd Roehl, a resident for five years, wonders if the ATF operation explains two unusual crimes in the neighborhood. Over the summer, the wheels were stolen off his wife’s SUV, which was left up on rocks. A couple of months later, thieves attempted to break in to his shed. The ATF operation was buying stolen goods, but he is unsure if his wife’s wheels ended up there.

He said the ATF should have chosen a less residential area, perhaps an industrial park or retail area.

“I have two small children and this is going on while they are playing outside?” he said. “The stigma is damaging. Every neighborhood tries to make things better. It does not help to have your own government planting crime here, which takes down, destroys and damages that. It’s like, ‘Thanks.’ ”

Milwaukee FBI agent who backed wounded veteran is honored | MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL | APR 14, 2014

An FBI agent in Milwaukee who refused to provide false testimony about a wounded combat veteran trying to become an agent – as he felt  pressured to do by his supervisor – has been honored by a federal officers association.

Special Agent Mark Crider was honored by the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association for “demonstrating moral courage and personal integrity for his actions in support of a wounded warrior.”

Crider said that FBI Milwaukee Special Agent in Charge Teresa Carlson urged him in a private meeting to testify that former Army Ranger Justin Slaby was not qualified to be an agent.

An investigation was launched into Carlson, regarding whether she directed Crider to commit perjury, according to federal court documents.

Carlson was transferred from Milwaukee to FBI headquarters, where she remains as acting deputy assistant director for the Facilities and Logistics Services Division, according to FBI spokeswoman Allison Mahan. She declined to comment on whether the investigation into Carlson continues.

Carlson has been replaced, with the recent announcement that Robert Shields is now the special agent in charge of the Milwaukee office. FBI Director James Comey is visiting the Milwaukee office Tuesday.

Slaby, who served on multiple combat tours, lost his hand in a training accident. He entered the FBI academy but was washed out. He sued the FBI, saying he was unfairly targeted. He will be admitted into FBI agent training June 1, according to his attorney.

The federal officers association honored Crider earlier this year for standing up for his belief, from the beginning, that Slaby could do what was necessary to become an agent.

According to the award citation, in the private meeting last April Carlson admonished Crider “that it would be in his best interest to come down on the side of the FBI in his testimony.”

Carlson told Crider that FBI headquarters was not happy that the Milwaukee office nominated Slaby to enter the academy.

“(Carlson) was instructing SA Crider to take the position that the plaintiff was not qualified to serve as an FBI Special Agent. This was interpreted as a threat by SA Crider … Crider responded that he would testify truthfully,” the award said. “Special Agent Crider is to be commended for his selfless service and his commitment to maintaining his honor despite enormous pressure from FBI executive management,” the award citation said.

Milwaukee FBI chief reassigned, investigated | WEAU NEWS | JUL 19, 2013

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Court records show the head of the Milwaukee FBI has been reassigned and is under investigation for trying to influence a subordinate’s testimony in a lawsuit against the agency.

The records say Teresa Carlson is under investigation by the Office of Inspector General for allegedly telling an agent last April that it would be in his best interest to “come down on the side of the government” in the lawsuit filed by an Army veteran who was denied a job with the agency because of a disability.

The Journal Sentinel says Carlson has been reassigned to FBI headquarters. Carlson refused to testify in the case last month in a federal courtroom in Virginia. She told the judge she was under investigation and wanted to consult an attorney.

The FBI Milwaukee office did not immediately return a call seeking comment.



Report says “highly inappropriate” conduct by former head of FBI | FOX 6 | AUG 29, 2014

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The former head of the FBI’s Milwaukee Field Office is the target of a condemning report. The report by the the Department of Justice mentions her handling of the Sikh temple shooting. The subject of that report is Teresa Carlson.

Carlson is not being prosecuted, but may face disciplinary action. The report says her conduct was, “highly inappropriate,” and showed, “a troubling lack of judgement.”

“It appears that Page died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head,” said Carlson.

In the days and weeks after the Sikh temple shooting, Teresa Carlson was the face of the FBI.

“We’re looking for any possible motive, and right now we still don’t have one,” said Carlson.

At the time, Carlson was in charge of the FBI’s Milwaukee Field Office. Carlson has since been removed from that job, and now a scathing report offers one explanation why.

The U.S. Department of Justice says in the wake of the shooting, “There were both perceived and real communication issues between the Chief of the Oak Creek Police Department, and Special Agent in charge Carlson” as their departments investigated the shooter’s past.

“We’ve got leads going a lot of different places,” said Carlson.

Though Carlson and Chief John Edwards appeared to a press conference together, the chief confirmed to FBI inspectors, there were problems.

When those inspectors interviewed an agent who spoke candidly about Carlson, the report says Carlson admonished the agent — something the report calls, “highly inappropriate.”

Chief Edwards turned down an interview request from FOX6 on Friday, saying he thinks the report speaks for itself.

Edwards says his department has always worked well with FBI agents on the ground, and any communication issues have been resolved. He says the shooting investigation itself was never jeopardized.

An FBI spokesman will only say, “this is a personal matter so we cannot comment.”

The report also goes into depth about another case involving Carlson. It says she coached a special agent on how to testify in a lawsuit filed by Justin Slaby, a wounded war vet trying to become an FBI agent.



Embattled former Milwaukee FBI chief retires from agency | MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL | JAN 08, 2015

The former chief of the FBI office in Milwaukee — suspected of encouraging an agent under her command to commit perjury and then lying about it to investigators — has retired from the bureau, according to an FBI spokesman.

Teresa Carlson retired as she was facing termination proceedings for her conduct related to the case of Justin Slaby, a wounded combat veteran who sought to become an FBI agent, according to multiple sources.

Carlson was served with termination papers and escorted out of FBI headquarters in October, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss FBI personnel matters.

An email was sent to FBI employees last week detailing discipline in the prior three months by the bureau’s Office of Professional Responsibility. The email included a summary of the case in which a supervisor suggested to an agent how to testify, sources said. The summary did not name Carlson, which is typical of such discipline summaries.

FBI spokesman Christopher Allen said such emails are internal communications for employees only. Allen confirmed that Carlson has retired. He declined to comment further.

Carlson, 50, was hired by the FBI in 1992. Agents who are 50 years old and have 20 years of experience are able to retire with full federal employee benefits. Carlson’s retirement benefits will be based on her salary, which the FBI has not released. Government pay scales indicate she made between $120,000 and $180,000 year.

Carlson has been serving as acting deputy assistant director of the Facilities and Logistics Division at headquarters in Washington — which manages FBI facilities and an $800 million budget — since summer 2013, when she first came under investigation.

A Justice Department report issued in August concluded that Carlson, as special agent in charge of the Milwaukee office, instructed a subordinate to commit perjury in the case of Slaby, who wanted to become a special agent. They also found she may have broken federal law by telling an agent to lie under oath. The Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section declined to prosecute Carlson.

Unprofessional conduct

Carlson also likely lied to investigators working for Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the FBI as well as federal prosecutors, the report says.

Horowitz’s office found Carlson “conducted herself unprofessionally and exhibited extremely poor judgment” when she coached Special Agent Mark Crider on how to testify in the case of Slaby.

According to Crider, Carlson told him to “come down” on the FBI’s side in the case. Carlson denied she told Crider how to testify, but the inspector general staff concluded her version of events was not credible.

Carlson invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in 2013 after she was subpoenaed to explain the conversation. Likewise, she refused to speak to inspector general staff until she was forced to do so.

Carlson could not be reached for comment Thursday.

FBI Deputy Director Sean Joyce quietly moved Carlson out of Milwaukee last summer.

When FBI Director James Comey came to Milwaukee last April, he sought out Crider to shake his hand, saying he wanted employees to be willing to come forward with problems.

The inspector general report also found Carlson wrongly admonished a subordinate for talking to FBI inspectors about friction between the FBI and local law enforcement following the Sikh temple shooting in Oak Creek in 2012.

In her statement to investigators, Carlson said the latest investigation — along with multiple earlier ones — was nothing more than “a hit” against her by Joyce, the bureau’s second-in-command, who has since retired. She said she had been investigated five times since she joined the agency’s top ranks — known as the Senior Executive Service, a few hundred managers on top of the 35,000-employee agency.

“It’s just been a continual (expletive) allegation after allegation after allegation,” she said.

Slaby, a combat war veteran from Oak Creek, lost his hand in a training incident and applied to become an FBI agent. He was washed out of the academy, and he then sued the FBI, saying he was treated unfairly. Crider agreed.

In April 2013, Crider told his supervisors he was going to give a deposition in the Slaby case.

Crider said Carlson lectured him in her office for 20 to 30 minutes, saying Slaby should not be an agent because he is disabled.

Slaby won his case, graduated from the FBI academy and is now a special agent, according to his attorney, Kathy Butler.



FBI Undercover Operations


Stay-Behind Special Agent Program

Between 1950 and 1951, the FBI was involved in planning for and beginning to implement a program to identify and train personnel who would act in a clandestine capacity in Alaska should the USSR invade the area. This Stay Behind Agent Program, also called STAGE by the FBI, was to be done in concert with other government agencies. The FBI abruptly ended its involvement in September of 1951; the reason why is not indicated in the materials released.



Joseph Demarest Named Associate Executive Assistant Director for the FBI’s Criminal, Cyber, Response, and Services Branch | FBI PRESS RELEASE | MAY 01 2015

Director James B. Comey has named Joseph M. Demarest, Jr. to the newly established position of associate executive assistant director for the FBI’s Criminal, Cyber, Response, and Services Branch (CCRSB). Director Comey created the position to address the FBI’s growing and vital work in cyber and criminal investigations, international operations, critical incident response, and victim assistance. Most recently, Mr. Demarest served as assistant director of the FBI Cyber Division.

“In his new role, Joe will serve as chief operations officer for CCRSB—providing technical advice and guidance across its components while establishing and nurturing relationships with federal, state, and local law enforcement and intelligence agencies,” said Director Comey. “With almost 30 years of FBI experience in investigative operations and national security matters, Joe brings a wealth of subject matter expertise to this new executive position.”

Mr. Demarest began his career at the FBI in 1988 as a special agent and was assigned to the Anchorage Division, where he investigated white-collar crime, drugs, violent crime, and foreign counterintelligence cases. In 1990, he transferred to the New York Office and was assigned to a Colombian drug squad. He was later promoted to squad supervisor and in 2000 was selected to serve as the drug branch’s acting assistant special agent in charge.



ATF sting in Milwaukee flawed from start | MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL | SEP 12, 2016

From the outset, an undercover gun-buying sting by federal agents in Milwaukee was plagued by confusion.

Local ATF agents wanted to target their longtime nemesis, the Outlaws. They had been going after the aging motorcycle gang with what they dubbed “Operation Smokin’ Piston,” breaking up untaxed cigarette operations on the south side, but were having little success nailing the gang.

It was 2011. Fellow agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives familiar with the Outlaws elsewhere in the country came to Milwaukee to offer some advice: Ditch the tobacco operation. The Outlaws were savvy to that type of sting. Instead try a fake storefront, a “surplus shop” and sell T-shirts, motorcycle parts and other goods as a front.  Situate the store in the gang’s prime territory: Police District 2.

That’s how to get the Outlaws, the experienced agents advised.

But higher-ups in the agency wanted a broader focus to the operation. With a violent crime rate double the national average, Milwaukee had more pressing problems. An ATF supervisor wanted the operation to target all gun violence in the city.  The sting should be located on the north side, closer to a majority of the firearms violence in Milwaukee, they said.

After the plan had been approved and without permission from headquarters, the location of the storefront was changed and Operation Fearless Distributing was hatched — not in District 2 but in a former sign factory north of downtown on a quiet street in Riverwest.

It was just the beginning of an operation marred by mismanagement and mistakes that would ultimately spark major reforms in how the federal agency conducts undercover storefront stings.

Those details and others were released in a report issued by the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General last week, three years after a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel investigation exposed major problems with the Fearless sting and other similar undercover operations nationwide.

The inspector general’s 112-page reportconfirmed the depth of the problems, calling them “avoidable,” and said significant reform was needed for such operations to be done correctly.

Investigators with the office also found the ATF and other federal law enforcement agencies were in violation of a 43-year-old disabilities law. Although they said they found no evidence that agents targeted people with disabilities, they found that operations in “Pensacola, Wichita, Milwaukee, and Portland storefronts each had one or two persons who regularly frequented the storefront, provided assistance to the undercover agents at times, and who were later alleged to have an I/DD (intellectual or developmental disabilities).”

The Justice Department has formed a group to study how to comply with the law.

The ATF has stopped running storefronts for now, but leaders stand by the tactic as an effective way to combat gun violence, noting the many guns and drugs seized in such operations and charges filed.

The inspector general report noted such operations are costly — the cash outlay for each one examined exceeded $200,000, excluding salaries and overtime. In addition, the stings can actually encourage people to commit crime and they typically succeed only in snaring low-level criminals, the report says.

The goal was to gather intelligence for bigger cases. But the investigators said based on the way the operations were conducted they “were not surprised that ATF’s storefronts did not lead to the arrest of leading gang figures or the dismantling of criminal organizations.”

Target: Biker gang

In Milwaukee, the U.S. attorney’s office had been briefed on the storefront plans before the operation was launched. Prosecutors later told inspector general investigators they were initially skeptical, in light of ATF’s failures in “Operation Fast and Furious,” where agents on the Mexican border allowed thousands of guns to pass into the hands of criminals. One ended up at the scene of the murder of a border patrol agent.

But ATF officials assured federal prosecutors the Milwaukee storefront would be safely run. Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn and District Attorney John Chisholm’s office also were briefed, the report says.

Yet Flynn later told investigators he “did not recall any mention of the Outlaws motorcycle gang,” when he endorsed the plan.

The FBI was invited to collaborate with the ATF in the Fearless Distributing storefront, but the agent assigned had reservations about the planning, security and intelligence gathering. An FBI supervisor told investigators she was “uncomfortable” with the entire operation. The FBI pulled out fewer than three weeks after the store opened, the report says.
