The United States continues to grow. The Federal Government has increased in size and scope over the past decades. The increased population and the uncertainty of world events has fueled a need for Federal Law Enforcment. The attacks of September 11, 2001 prompted a renewed committment to national security within the Federal Government. Prior to the attacks of 9-11 much of the countries "national defense" focused outside the borders of the United States. Now, federal law enofrcement officers from all branches of the government work securing the United States inside and outside the boundaries of the United States. Whether it is Border Patrol Agents patroling the deserts of Arizona or Transportation Security Officers examining baggage in Logan International Airport they are working to protect the citizens of the United States.
