Leadership[edit]

Headed by an FBI Executive Assistant Director, the STB is responsible to the FBI Director through the Deputy Director. As a unit of the FBI (which is a division of the United States Department of Justice), the NSB is ultimately responsible to the Attorney General of the United States.

The current STB Executive Assistant Director is Steven M. Martinez, who was appointed by FBI Director Robert Mueller on May 9, 2012.[2]

Organization[edit]

The STB was formed by the unification of the FBI's various scientific investigation and support units.
