Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) Director Langley started his law enforcement career 34 years ago in Custer County, Oklahoma, working as an Office Deputy. He quickly rose through the ranks there and was hired on with OSBI as a Special Agent in 1977, assigned to the Lawton, Oklahoma office. Only three years later, Langley was promoted to Deputy Inspector in Woodward, Oklahoma. He was the lead investigator on the only long term “sting operation” in the history of the agency. Langley became Inspector in that region four years later. In 1990, he was promoted to Deputy Director of OSBI and five years later in 1995, he was appointed Director.
During his tenure, the agency has implemented many revolutionary crime-fighting programs such as the Statewide Intelligence Network, a Crime Scene Agent program, a Computer Crimes Unit, and computerized databases in DNA, Firearms and Tool Marks, and digital images.
Under his leadership, the agency has become accredited by the American Society of Crime Lab Directors (ASCLD Lab) and has also attained national recognition for becoming one of only two law enforcement agencies in the state of Oklahoma to be accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).
Director Langley has a Bachelor of Science degree from Northwestern Oklahoma State University and a Master's degree from Oklahoma State University, where he is currently pursuing a doctor of education degree.
