Our Directorate of Intelligence is front and center in making sure the FBI produces the intelligence necessary to protect the nation.

Every day, special agents, intelligence analysts, language analysts, and professional support staff within our division and in the field are working to inform and support FBI operational activities. A key component of the National Security Branch, the Directorate of Intelligence manages all FBI intelligence activities and works with all Bureau offices, making certain that intelligence is embedded in every investigative program and field office. We continue to adapt and improve upon our collection, analysis, and dissemination capabilities in a proactive fashion, while protecting the civil liberties of all Americans.
