FBI Commemorates Its Centennial

Named the Bureau of Investigation when it was established in 1908, the FBI has evolved from a law enforcement agency tasked with investigating crimes after they occur to a national security organization whose number-one priority is stopping acts of terrorism and other criminal activities before they occur.
