More Information
The Secret Service was established after the Civil War by the Treasury Dep't, originally to protect American currency against counterfeiters. After the assassination of President Wm. McKinley in 1901, Congress directed the Secret Service to protect the President of the United States. Protection remains the primary misison of the U.S. Secret Service.

It takes a special type of individual to be a U.S. Secret Service agent, one willing to "take a bullet" to preserve the ideals on which the United States was founded. To be a U.S. Secret Service Agent lifts the curtain for a look inside this secretive law enforcement agency, including the highly selective recruiting, the intense training, and the specialized weapons & equipment used to protect current & past Presidents, Vice Presidents, their families, and visiting heads of state.
