Intelligence Branch Overview

In August 2014, Director James Comey established the FBI’s Intelligence Branch to lead the integration of intelligence and operations across the organization. The Intelligence Branch is responsible for all intelligence strategy, resources, policies, and functions.

The ongoing efforts of the Intelligence Branch represent the continued evolution of the FBI’s Intelligence Program and the Bureau’s essential ability to fulfill both its national security and law enforcement responsibilities. As the threat environment continues to evolve, so must the FBI in order to keep pace with the United States’ adversaries.

The Intelligence Branch includes both the Directorate of Intelligence and the Office of Partner Engagement.

The Directorate of Intelligence is the FBI’s dedicated national intelligence workforce, with clear authority and responsibility for all Bureau intelligence functions. The directorate’s mission is to provide strategic support, direction, and oversight to the FBI’s Intelligence Program. It carries out this function through embedded intelligence elements at FBI Headquarters and in each field division.

The Office of Partner Engagement focuses on managing initiatives and strategies to support communications, coordination, and cooperation with law enforcement, intelligence, and public and private partners to enhance the FBI’s domestic intelligence and information-sharing capabilities.
