The Federal Bureau of Investigation covers more types of crime than you might realize

FBI

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, orFBI, was established in 1908 as a small, unnamed investigative arm of the United States Department of Justice. Over the span of almost 110 years, it has grown and evolved into the FBI people are familiar with today. It has had 20 serving directors over the years, the most notable being J. Edgar Hoover, who served as director from 1924 until 1972. He had the longest tenure, followed by Robert S. Mueller, III, who was the director for 12 years, from 2001 until 2013.

In 1909, this investigative arm was named the Bureau of Investigation by then Attorney General George W. Wickersham. The BOI continued to grow and evolve, being assigned more and more responsibilities by the United States government. In 1935 it officially became the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Also in that year, the FBI started a national police training program. That has evolved into the current FBI National Academy, which trains federal law enforcement today.

The FBI currently investigates federal crimes from terrorism to weapons of mass destruction. Most people are familiar with FBI investigations into civil rights violations and organized crime, but they also investigate cyber crime, public corruption, white collar crime, and violent crime. The FBI also assists in investigations on the state level for things such as the kidnapping of a young child, or serial criminal activity. Some of the more infamous FBI investigations were those into the murder of civil rights activist Medgar Evers, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and the investigation of the John Walker spy ring. However, the FBI has also been involved in investigations of judicial misconduct, such as the GREYLORD investigation in Cook County, Illinois and the ILLWIND investigation into corruption in the Department of Defense procurement. The FBI are the people that police the police.

Most recently, the FBI is front and center of the investigations into the many threats of terrorism faced by the United States, both here and abroad. Terroristic threats to the United States are on the rise, and the FBI investigates any potential threat, from cyberterrorism to riots and bombings. Racial tensions are currently also at a high point, and the FBI is monitoring this as well. With over 50 field offices and many satellite offices, there are FBI special agents in every state in the US, as well as some in US territories. Also, there are over 60 liaison offices abroad, known as legal attaches. The FBI is a national security organization that operates and assists in both state and local investigations, as well as federal and international investigations to protect the United States and her citizens.
