Meet Jody Weis
Federal Bureau of Investigation
Jody Weis served in the FBI for 23-years, holding every position from Special Agent to Deputy Assistant Director. As a member of the FBI’s Senior Executive Service, Weis served as the Special Agent in Charge of both the Los Angeles and Philadelphia field offices, as well as working as Deputy Assistant Director in both the Human Resources Division and the Office of Professional Responsibility. During his investigative years, Weis focused on fugitives, violent crimes, gangs, and terrorism matters. Additionally, he performed the ancillary duties of SWAT, Special Agent Bomb Technician, as well as Firearms Instructor.
Chicago Police Department
Following a rash of controversial incidents, Mayor Daley appointed Weis as the 54th Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department. In 3-years, he drove cultural change and implemented policies that resulted in the lowest homicide totals in 45-years, reduced lawsuits against police officers by nearly 50%, and formed scores of new relationships with both community and law enforcement partners. The Chicago Police Department is the second largest police department in the US, with more than 13,000 sworn officers and with an operating budget in excess of one billion USD.
Accenture Public Safety
In 2014, Accenture made the decision to pursue public safety opportunities in North America and brought Weis, and his 26-years of law enforcement experience, on board to serve as its North American public safety expert. For the past 7-years, Weis was a pioneer of Accenture’s US public safety practice. He has proven to Accenture leadership that its public safety industry can pursue and win work in North America. Weis was also a key member of Accenture’s global public safety team, bringing his experience, knowledge, and insight to Accenture to offer the expertise of an actual police practice that complemented this global firm’s immense consulting, technical, and strategic capabilities. This unique combination separated Accenture from many, if not all, of its competitors.
US Army Veteran
Weis is a graduate of the University of Tampa, as well as a US Army Veteran. He served over five years as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Commander, earning the rank of Captain in the Army. He and his wife Janice live in Scottsdale, Arizona.
