The Protective Investigations Program was established in early 2004, to ensure the safety of Department and Federal Protective Service protectees and facilities. The objective of the program is to prevent an attack on persons and facilities designated as FPS protectees.

Incident Management in the nation's current threat environment necessitates mobility, interconnectivity and communications interoperability between federal, state and local emergency service agencies. FPS operates Mobile Command Posts (MCP) to meet this demand. Strategically located around the country, FPS regional offices maintain their assigned MCP in ready condition for immediate deployment to any emergency incident nationwide.

In 2000, FPS transitioned all alarm-monitoring and dispatching capabilities from several regional control centers to four MegaCenters. Currently, each MegaCenter monitors multiple types of alarm systems, closed circuit television, and wireless dispatch communications within federal facilities throughout the entire nation. The centers—located in Michigan, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Maryland—are equipped with state-of-the-art communication systems and in operation 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.

The mission of the Explosive Detector Dog (EDD) teams is the protection of life and property and providing a strong visible and psychological deterrence against criminal and terrorist acts. Prior to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the FPS had a minimal program of 12 EDD teams located in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area. Since that time, the FPS EDD program has expanded to more than 70 teams nationwide.
