FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III today named Charles S. Prouty to the post of executive assistant director of law enforcement services, a post in which he will oversee the bureau's Criminal Justice Information Service Division as well as training, laboratory, critical response and international operations.

Prouty succeeds executive assistant director Kathleen L. McChesney who is retiring from the FBI after 24 years as a special agent to work for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Prouty most recently was special agent in charge of the bureau's Boston office. A former Navy SEAL and Vietnam veteran, Prouty graduated from the Naval Academy and holds master's and law degrees.
