International Offices

Crime does not stop at our borders, and neither do we. HSI’s expansive international presence enables us to identify and stop crime before it reaches the United States.

With a global footprint spanning over 90 offices in more than 50 countries, HSI is uniquely positioned to shield our nation from transnational threats.

HSI’s cadre of nearly 500 internationally deployed special agents, criminal analysts and mission support personnel work alongside locally employed staff and foreign law enforcement partners to advance the HSI mission around the world.

Through its global network of attaches and liaisons, HSI establishes and builds relationships with foreign and interagency counterparts. We then use these partnerships to further our investigations, initiatives, and operations that have an international connection. Together with our partners abroad, we collect evidence; arrest criminals; seize drugs, money, weapons, and other items; stop threats from traveling to the United States; and conduct other activities to protect the public from those seeking to harm our country.

Collectively, these efforts help equip HSI with an unparalleled capability to combat transnational criminal organizations on a global scale, and to detect and deter national security and public safety threats before they reach the homeland.
