About Diplomatic Security

Credentials of a DS special agent.As the Department of State's law enforcement and security arm, the Bureau of Diplomatic Security does not formulate foreign policy. Instead, it is charged with a two-pronged mission: To ensure the integrity of U.S. travel documents and to provide a safe and secure environment for the conduct of U.S. foreign policy.

Not only is Diplomatic Security a unique organization in the foreign affairs community -- it is the only law enforcement agency with representation in nearly every country in the world.
