The Federal Bureau of Investigation is poised to boost its presence in the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas with the addition of new agents to its local office.

FBI Special Agent, Brandon Simpson, says two of the agents now with the bureau's CNMI office are preparing to leave for new assignments but four will replace them, likely by the end of the year.

Agent Simpson says one task assigned to the four new agents will be investigating public corruption.
