Mission Statement

The mission of the Coast Guard Investigative Service is to support and protect Coast Guard personnel, operations, integrity and assets worldwide. We prevent and defeat criminal threats through objective and independent investigations.

Authority

The Coast Guard Investigative Service is a federal law enforcement agency whose law enforcement authority is derived from Title 14 of the United States Code. This authority provides for Coast Guard special agents to conduct investigations of actual, alleged or suspected criminal activity; carry firearms; execute and serve warrants; and make arrests.

Commitment

Today CGIS is comprised of approximately 112 active duty military special agents, 121 civilian special agents (1811 series), and 158 special agents who are members of the Coast Guard Reserve. These agents along with support personnel are spread out among eight regional offices and over 35 Resident Agent offices along with CGIS-HQ located in Washington, DC. In a period of declining budgets and personnel resources, CGIS remains firmly committed to providing effective law enforcement services, with minimal financial impact to the taxpayers of the United States.
