WASHINGTON, May 14 (UPI) -- The head of the FBI announced the appointment of a more-than-20-year agency veteran as the new director of the Terrorist Screening Center.

FBI Director Robert Mueller named Timothy Healy as the director of the FBI Terrorist Screening Center. Healy, who helped stand up the Terrorist Screening Center in 2003 following a Homeland Security Presidential Directive, will replace Leonard Boyle, the FBI reported.

According to a news release, Healy has worked on telemarketing and Internet fraud cases, among others. Most recently he has been involved with intelligence and terrorism operations at the FBI.

"The TSC strives to ensure the proper balance between protecting our national security and the need for accurate, efficient and streamlined watch-listing processes," Mueller said in a statement.

"Tim's experience in the TSC from its earliest days will be an invaluable asset to his service as its director."
