Officials say the FBI will bring hundreds of jobs to Redstone Arsenal, Alabama as part of an expansion including the agency’s first large-scale operations support building.
News outlets report the FBI announced the expansion Thursday at Redstone Arsenal just outside Huntsville.
Robert Hamilton, FBI senior executive for Redstone, says it will move nearly 1,400 personnel and contractors from the Washington, D.C., region. The FBI has roughly 300 employees working on its two campuses at Redstone.
Organizations with a presence at Redstone Arsenal include Army Materiel Command headquarters, Army Space and Missile Defense Command, Missile Defense Agency and the FBI’s Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center.
