SA Smith entered on duty in the FBI in July 2012. Following the FBI academy, SA Smith's first assignment was to the El Paso Field Office's Violent Crime/Major Offense Squad (VCMO). On the VCMO squad, SA Smith investigated federal crimes ranging from bank robberies and extortions to violent crimes and crimes against children. However, his primary focus was to investigate human trafficking and crimes against children.
