Executive Summary: Since the founding of the United States of America countless federal law enforcement agencies have been established to counter threats within the homeland. In 1789 the U.S. Marshals Service was created to protect government witnesses. In 1790 the Federal Protective Service was created to protect U.S. government facilities. In 1865 the United States Secret Service (USSS) was created to stamp out counterfeit currency and later to protect U.S. presidents. In 1919 the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Criminal Investigative Division was created to investigate tax-related fraud, currency violations, and money laundering. In 1973 President Nixon executed an Executive Order establishing the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to enforce federal drug laws. Finally, in 2002 President Bush created the Department of Homeland Security in response to the 9/11 terror attacks. In 2022, however, there is still no coordinated effort nor a consolidated entity that leads an effort to keep our children within our public schools safe.
