Our Legal Attaché program is administered by the International Operations Division at FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C. Through the Legal Attaché program and other efforts, the International Operations Division serves as a bridge to our foreign partners and a channel to strengthen the global rule of law. It works regularly through elements of international law enforcement agencies such as Interpol and Europol, as well as numerous working groups, working groups and training initiatives. The FBI agent who heads an international office is also known as a legal attaché or legate. They serve as the FBI Director`s personal representative in the country where they have regional responsibilities. Legal Attachés are experienced and highly qualified investigators who work directly and openly with their international colleagues. They do not conduct foreign intelligence services or counterintelligence investigations. Most right-wing attachés are supported by a deputy or deputy legal attaché and other staff. Our 63 law attaché offices – commonly referred to as inheritances – and 15 smaller sub-offices are located in major cities around the world, covering more than 180 countries, territories and islands.
