Director Speaks on Outreach Efforts and Rule of Law

Director Robert Mueller addressed two different groups in New York City today. His first stop was the annual meeting of the American College of Trial Lawyers, where he spoke about the FBI’s transformation in the years since 9/11 and what we are doing to continue to move forward. From national security to cyber capabilities to partnerships, Mueller framed each issue within the very important context of the rule of law, which he described as “a hallmark of our democracy,” emphasizing that “our commitment to this ideal must never waver.” “The FBI has always adapted to meet new threats,” Mueller said, “but our values can never change.”

Later in the afternoon, Mueller addressed the Police Athletic League of New York, acknowledging our long-term partnership with the New York Police Department and focusing overall on the concept of connection—with our law enforcement and intelligence partners and with the citizens we serve. “We in the Bureau understand that our ability to protect the American people depends in large part on the public’s trust in the FBI,” said Mueller. “That trust is not static. We must work hard to earn it with every investigation, and every interaction, in every community.”
