Jeffrey Millslagle has been named the new Director of Safety and Security for the Tyler, Texas ISD.

Millslagle will lead the charge to ensure safety measures and emergency preparedness for all Tyler ISD facilities are in line with today’s school climate, said a news release.

Over the span of his 26-year career with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Millslagle has managed and directed investigations of counter-terrorism, violent crimes, drugs, white collar crimes, and crisis management. Millslagle served as Supervisory Senior Resident Agent/Special Agent with the FBI from 1985 to 2011 and as a Special Agent with the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR). In his eight years of experience with SIGAR, he investigated complex contract fraud and corruption cases involving U.S. taxpayer’s dollars in Afghanistan and the United States. After a two-year deployment to Afghanistan, Millslagle was awarded a United States Department of State Award for Heroism and a Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency Sentner Award for Dedication and Courage in 2014.

“We are extremely fortunate for the opportunity to bring aboard one of Tyler’s own, as Agent Millslagle’s experience, talent, and relationships match the job’s demands. His extensive background in safety and security will be a great asset to our District alongside Tyler ISD’s law enforcement, social-emotional learning through counseling services, the District’s disciplinary program and other #safeTisd initiatives,” said Tyler ISD Superintendent Dr. Marty Crawford.
