The FBI is one of those organizations whose reputation precedes it. It has become the stuff of legend thanks to Hollywood and other film industries. Along with the CIA, KGB, and MI6, the FBI has certainly carved out an important role in both pop culture and the serious world of crime busting. So what does this organization actually do? Well, starting with its name, the Federal Bureau of Investigation…investigates! It is the United State’s primary federal law enforcement agency. This means that the FBI is something like the CIA except it deals in domestic matters, while the CIA handles overseas intelligence. In spite of this, the FBI does have several offices around the globe, primarily so that it can coordinate with international law enforcement agencies. Within the United States, the FBI has jurisdiction over more than 200 federal crimes. It has offices in 56 major cities, and it has secondary offices around the country (more than 400 of them!). The major aspect of the FBI’s work that sets it apart from local law enforcement is the scale. It deals with terrorism, organized crime, and cyber security.
