Agent John Doggett joined the
FBI from the New York City Police Department, where he served
as a Detective in the Fugitive Division's Warrant section.
Approaching all of his investigations like a doubting cop,
he believes that everything can be explained with standard
police techniques. So it is no surprise that after only
five years at the Bureau, he is assigned by Deputy Director
Kersh to run the task force looking for Mulder. Although
he may be set up to fail, Doggett has resigned himself to
solve the case.
Masters and doctoral degrees
in Public Administration from Syracuse University prove
Doggett's willingness to conform to the government's blueprint.
He is the consummate insider on the fast track to success.
Previous to his police work, Doggett held the rank of Sergeant
in the United States Marine Corps' Amphibious Unit and played
a role in the Multi-National Peacekeeping Force for Lebanon
Development. With six years in the military, he retired
with commendations after being wounded in the line of duty.
