I protect the president and vice president, their families, heads of state, and other designated individuals; investigate threats against these protectees; and protect the White House, vice president’s residence, foreign missions, and other buildings within Washington, DC. I also investigate violations of laws relating to counterfeiting of obligations and securities of the United States and financial crimes that include access device fraud, financial institution fraud, identity theft, computer fraud, and computer-based attacks on the U.S. financial, banking, and telecommunications infrastructure.

I am an Immigration and Customs Enforcement police agency that provides law enforcement and security services to the tenants and daily visitors to all federally owned and leased facilities. I focus on the interior security of the nation and the reduction of crimes and potential threats to federal facilities throughout the nation.

I am a component of the Department of Homeland Security that provides training, funds for the purchase of equipment, support for the planning and execution of exercises, technical assistance, and other support to assist states and local jurisdictions to prevent, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism.
