About Federal Bureau of Investigation

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) works to keep US citizens safe from threats both domestic and foreign. The primary investigative arm of the US Department of Justice, the FBI protects and defends the nation against such threats as terrorism, political corruption, white-collar crime, organized crime, cyber attack, and violent crime. With an annual budget of about $8 billion, the agency operates 56 field offices, more than 400 resident agencies throughout the US, and 60 offices abroad within US embassies. The FBI was established in 1908 while Theodore Roosevelt was in the White House. The agency's motto has been "Fidelity, Bravery, and Integrity" since 1935.
