2015 Annual Report

For a century and a half, the Secret Service has been at the forefront of the law enforcement community. Since our inception in 1865, we have seen our mission evolve into one of the most critical in our democracy; ensuring the safety of the President of the United States and securing the nation’s financial infrastructure. July 5, 2015 marked the 150th anniversary of our organization and its commitment to the American people. In addition to celebrating our history, we implemented notable internal and external changes to improve the agency’s efficiency and increase our mission success. The Secret Service continues to build on a tradition of excellence while preparing for the challenges of the future.

I am proud to say that as an agency, we accomplished a great deal together over the past year. Most notably, we flawlessly executed the largest domestic security operation in our history, to include the three-city visit of Pope Francis to the United States while simultaneously securing the 70th annual United Nations General Assembly. We were also able to address some notable long-term priorities such as improving staffing levels, realigning business functions and improving morale through better employee engagement.

My vision for this organization is always focused on mission success, and equally on the importance of the individual employee. To succeed in this uniquely difficult mission, it is vital that employees are properly equipped, trained and feel valued. Our agency and the American people deserve no less.

I am honored to be the Director of the Secret Service at this critical point in its history. I want to convey my appreciation to the more than 6,300 employees for their hard work and dedication over the past year. I am convinced that their sacrifice and commitment will assure the future success of the organization.

On behalf of the staff and management of the Secret Service, it is my pleasure to present the 2015 Annual Report.

- Director Joseph Clancy
