Brown developed the Internet Crimes Unit in 2009 and recently helped coordinate several joint state and federal investigations into large-scale poaching, leading to statewide prosecutions. Curtis will oversee more than 1,000 law enforcement employees.

Brown, who also served in the Air Force, began his FWC career as an officer in Hendry and Collier counties. He replaces Calvin Adams Jr., who is retiring after serving as director since May 2013.
