Federal Bureau of Investigation

From Stormravengaming

(Redirected from FBI)

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is a federal criminal investigative, intelligence agency, and the primary investigative arm of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ). At present, the FBI has investigative jurisdiction over violations of more than 200 categories of federal crimes, making the FBI the de-facto lead law enforcement agency of the United States government. The motto of the bureau is "Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity."

Started in 1908 as the Bureau of Investigation (BOI), the FBI did not receive its current name until 1935 during the leadership of J. Edgar Hoover, the sixth BOI Director. He was the longest-serving director to date, and was significantly responsible for developing the scope of the agency. He is also responsible for many of the advancements and changes that made way for the bureau to become one of the top investigative agencies in the world. The J. Edgar Hoover Building, the FBI Academy, and the Criminal Justice Information Services Complex serve as the main support offices for each of the field offices that are located throughout the country.

For a full description of the real-world agency, see the article at Wikipedia.

In TV Superheroes

The FBI often investigates, with varying degrees of credulity, superpowered individuals and paranormal phenomena, especially when they bear upon the FBI's central purpose of criminal investigation.
