The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) is the primary law enforcement agency of the US Department of the Navy. Its field agents are armed federal investigators and frequently work with other US federal agencies. NCIS has a presence in over forty countries worldwide, as well as on US Navy vessels, known as "Agents Afloat".

Function Edit

The agency's mandate is to investigate crimes involving the United States Navy and the US Marine Corps. However, this function also includes matters of national security, counter-intelligence, counter-terrorism, cyber warfare and the defence of naval interests worldwide. It was established in 1992 as the successor to the Naval Investigative Service (NIS).
