Genachowski Picks Retired Admiral to Head Public Safety, Homeland Security Bureau

Admiral Jamie Barnett (ret.) has been chosen to lead the FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB). "I am delighted that Admiral Barnett, with his broad and deep experience with public safety issues and familiarity with the concerns of state and local governments, will be joining the agency," said FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski.

Admiral Barnett’s 32 year military career included the roles of Deputy Commander of the Navy Expeditionary Combat Command and Director of Naval Education and Training at the Pentagon.

In his civilian life, Mr. Barnett advised and represented government officials as an attorney in state and federal courts over an eighteen year career of private practice. Clients included cities, counties, school districts, law enforcement agencies and development authorities.

Along with the Barnett announcement, Genachowki also named David Furth and Jennifer Manner as Deputy Chiefs of the PSHSB.
