Ronald T. Hosko entered on duty with the FBI in July 1984. Upon completion of training at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, he was assigned to the Jackson Division. While in Jackson, he investigated white-collar crime, organized crime, and drug matters, including significant cases involving advance fee and Ponzi schemes, as well as a case resulting in the conviction of leaders, members, and associates of the Bandidos motorcycle gang. He served on the Jackson Division SWAT team.

In August 1988, Mr. Hosko transferred to the Chicago Division, where he spent several months working undercover in the "Sourmash" investigation targeting fraudulent commodities trading at the Chicago Board of Trade. Mr. Hosko subsequently investigated white-collar and financial crimes in Chicago until early 1992, when he was reassigned to conduct violent crime and fugitive investigations on the Chicago Violent Crimes Task Force. From 1990 to 1996, Mr. Hosko was a member of the Chicago SWAT team.

In September 1995, Mr. Hosko was designated term supervisor of the Chicago Violent Crimes Task Force, and one year later, he was assigned as a stationary supervisor of the same squad, focusing the squad's efforts on ransom kidnappings, bank and armored car robberies, murder-for-hire plots, extortion, and other federal crimes.

Mr. Hosko was reassigned to the Critical Incident Response Group as a supervisor in the Crisis Management Unit in January 2001 and served in that role until August 2001, when he was promoted to unit chief in the same unit. While assigned to the Crisis Management Unit, Mr. Hosko served as a deputy to the Joint Operations Center commander during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and led the FBI's integration of the interagency Joint Operations Center during the Washington, D.C.-area sniper shootings.

In July 2003, Mr. Hosko was promoted to assistant special agent in charge of the Philadelphia Division and provided oversight of the Criminal Enterprise and Violent Crimes branch in addition to surveillance and technical operations and several resident agencies. Mr. Hosko also served as the program manager for crisis management, ensuring the division's SWAT team, crisis negotiators, and other components were trained and prepared for an integrated response. In the winter/spring of 2005, Mr. Hosko served as the on-scene commander of FBI personnel deployed to support Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. In September 2005, Mr. Hosko served as deputy to the senior federal law enforcement official following the landfall of Hurricane Katrina; and in February 2006, Mr. Hosko served as the deputy on-scene commander for FBI personnel supporting the Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy.

Mr. Hosko was promoted to inspector in April 2007. He was an integral part of the Inspection Reconstruction Project beginning in late 2007 and continuing throughout 2008. Mr. Hosko has led the inspection of FBI investigative programs and field offices. He has conducted multiple management reviews, as well as the inquiry into fatal and serious shooting incidents.
