    Bio: B. Todd Jones joined the National Football League as Senior Vice President and Special Counsel for Conduct in April 2015. He previously served as the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in Washington D.C. ATF is a unique Federal law enforcement agency within the U.S. Department of Justice charged with enforcing firearms and explosives laws and regulations that protect communities from violent criminals and criminal organizations. He was nominated by President Barack Obama in January 2013 to serve as the agency's permanent director while he was serving as the Acting Director, a responsibility he assumed in September 2011. Following his confirmation, Jones became the agency's first permanent director in seven years and the first Senate confirmed director.

    Bio 2: President Obama had previously nominated Jones for the position of United States Attorney for the District of Minnesota in June 2009, and he was one of the first U.S. Attorneys confirmed by the U.S. Senate following the change in Administrations that year. United States Attorneys serve as the nation's principal litigators under the direction of the Attorney General, and each is the chief federal law enforcement officer within his or her particular jurisdiction. In September 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder appointed Jones to serve as Chair of the Attorney General Advisory Committee (AGAC). This body, consisting of representative United States Attorneys from around the country, is responsible for advising the Attorney General on a broad array of Department of Justice policy issues. Prior to becoming U.S. Attorney in 2009, Jones was a partner with a major national law firm in Minneapolis.
