The Secret Service has always represented the very best of our federal government. In
1865, we became the first federal investigative agency. Today, we are the protector of the
President of the United States, our nation’s leaders, and the financial infrastructure that
drives the U.S. economy. Simply put, we are more than just a law enforcement agency.
I am extremely proud of the success our work force displayed in 2013. Our mission
requires that our employees make many sacrifices, including being away from their
families, working long hours, and operating in high stress environments. Our highly
skilled workforce is the key to our success, and I commend their steadfast commitment to
serving our country.
Ensuring we are prepared and resourced to conduct our mission is my top priority. To
that end, we have developed and implemented a variety of innovative technologies and
tactics to counteract emerging threats and evaluate daily mission performance. The
Secret Service must always operate at a 100 percent success rate. In order to maintain
that achievement, we will continue to deploy cutting edge technologies, develop
new techniques and training opportunities, and leverage the capabilities of our law
enforcement, private sector, and academic partners.
As we reflect on 2013, and build for the future, I want employees to know our history and
understand our past. Many dedicated men and women have served in this great agency
throughout the years and have left a legacy of unwavering commitment and pride. The
Secret Service’s “Honor the Oath” campaign is a reminder of our responsibility to always
be worthy of trust and confidence. The federal government has entrusted this agency with
a great responsibility and sacred trust. As a result, each of us must live up to the oath and
always be worthy of this responsibility.
It is my privilege and honor to serve as the 23rd Director of the United States Secret
Service. I look forward to our future and to supporting the U.S. Department of Homeland
Security in safeguarding our nation. On behalf of the 6,480 men and women of the
United States Secret Service, it is my pleasure to present the 2013 Annual Report.
