Our Offices

Our Offices

We live and work alongside the people we are sworn to protect, so our work is personal. HSI identifies, investigates, and stops criminals, while supporting those victimized by their crimes.

HSI’s workforce consists of more than 10,000 employees, including special agents, criminal analysts, mission support personnel and contract staff assigned to offices throughout the United States and around the world.

Most of HSI’s 6,000 special agents are assigned to one of HSI’s 235 Special Agent in Charge (SAC) offices or sub-offices located across the nation. HSI’s domestic footprint is supplemented by more than 2,800 task force officers representing key strategic federal, state and local partners in the fight to combat transnational criminal organizations.

HSI’s international force is DHS’s largest investigative presence abroad, anchored by special agents assigned to U.S. embassies, consulates and Department of Defense (DOD) combatant commands around the globe. HSI has one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

  • Headquarters Offices

    Located in Washington, D.C., HSI Headquarters (HQ) sets the strategic direction for HSI and plays a critical support role for HSI’s global operations. 

  • Domestic Offices

    HSI’s domestic field offices investigate crime on a global scale to protect what matters most – our country, our people, our future.

  • 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.

  • Centers & Labs

    Innovation, expertise, and partnership form the foundation of the many Centers and Labs that HSI leads.
