MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Milwaukee has a new Special Agent in Charge for its FBI division.

Robert Shields has developed a reputation as a cyber cop by utilizing computers to head off and catch digital felons.

The bureau has launched investigations like Operation Phish Phry and Ghost Click to go after criminals trying to steal access to private information from home and business computers.

Shields helped set up a computer forensics lab while he was in Chicago. It's a joint effort between the FBI and local law enforcement to chase down terrorism, child porn, fraud and corruption.
