THE FBI: HISTORY AND IMPORTANCE 2 The FBI: Its History and Importance Crime in the world is at an all-time high.

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is one of the premier agencies that are up for the task.

This essay will discuss the history of the Federal Bureau of Investigations and its function of law enforcement in free society. It will also describe the professional roles, description, duty description, and career opportunities of these jobs to include the legal and social restraints on law enforcement. The history of the Federal Bureau of Investigations started in 1870 “when U.S. Attorney General Charles Bonaparte orders a group of newly hired federal investigators to report to Chief Examiner Stanley W. Finch of the Department of Justice. One year later, the Office of the Chief Examiner was renamed the Bureau of Investigation, and in 1935 it became the Federal Bureau of Investigation” (Staff Editor, 2013). The vision of the FBI is comprised of a statement that states that the agency stays ahead of the threat via means of appropriate leadership, agility, and integration. The mission statement is to protect the American society and to uphold our Constitution. The priorities of the Federal Bureau of Investigations includes “protect the United States from terrorist attack, protect the United States against foreign intelligence operations and espionage, protect the United States against cyber-based attacks and high-technology crimes, combat public corruption at all levels, protect civil rights, combat transnational/national criminal organizations and enterprises, combat major white-collar crime, and combat significant violent crime” (Staff Editor, 2016). The obligation of the FBI is much like taking the oath of service
