Within the Department of the Navy, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is the civilian federal law enforcement agency uniquely responsible for investigating felony crime, preventing terrorism and protecting secrets for the Navy and Marine Corps. NCIS will defeat threats from across the foreign intelligence, terrorist and criminal spectrum by conducting operations and investigations ashore, afloat, and in cyberspace, in order to protect and preserve the superiority of the Navy and Marine Corps warfighters. NCIS operates in approximately 191 locations, in more than 41 countries. Given the organization's worldwide forward presence, NCIS is often the first federal law enforcement agency on the scene when U.S. interests overseas are affected. NCIS agents routinely work with local, state, federal, and foreign law enforcement and security agencies to address criminal incidents, identify and mitigate threats to U.S. naval forces and assets, and pursue joint proactive operations. As part of its ongoing effort to expand its ties with other agencies, NCIS personnel often provide law enforcement and security force training, share "lessons learned" in behavioral assessment, host seminars on Cold Case resolution, and more. NCIS continues to support and pursue new and innovative ways to partner with the international law enforcement community, and is always seeking new partners.
