The Human Resources Branch (HRB) is a service within the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The HRB is responsible for all internal human resources needs of the FBI and for conducting the FBI Academy to train new FBI Agents.


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

The current HRB Executive Assistant Director is Janet L. Kamerman, who appointed by FBI Director Robert Mueller in November 2010.[2]


The HRB was formed by the unification of the FBI's human resources and training units.
