MAY 1—After 27 years of federal service and nearly eight years as the FBI director, Louis J. Freeh announced today that he will retire next month.

Freeh, appointed by President Clinton in 1993, had been asked by President Bush to stay on during the transition to the new administration.

In a press release, Freeh said keeping the FBI ahead in cybercrime, hiring over 4,000 technical and professional employees and doubling FBI's overseas presence were the major accomplishments during his tenure.
