Diplomatic Security has offices throughout the United States staffed with special agents and contract investigators. These agents form the backbone of DS's investigative mission, conducting criminal, counterterrorism, and background investigations. Agents assigned to field and resident offices assist in providing support to the protection of the Secretary of State, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and visiting foreign dignitaries. In addition, they are charged with security support for resident foreign diplomats and assistance to the private sector through the Overseas Security Advisory Council. Liaison with federal and local law enforcement, foreign mission personnel, local officials, and the private sector complements their major responsibilities.
