Additional Information

Tasked with protecting U.S. diplomats, Embassies and Consulates, as well as the integrity of U.S. travel documents, the Diplomatic Security Service has the largest global reach of any U.S. federal law enforcement agency. Diplomatic Security has offices in 29 U.S. cities and in more than 270 locations around the world. Since 1916, Diplomatic Security and its predecessor agencies have investigated passport and visa crime. The dedicated cadre of special agents, analysts, and support staff coordinate with other federal and international law enforcement agencies to help protect the integrity of the U.S. passport and visa.
