The Navy Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) is a civilian federal law enforcement agency that serves to protect the people, equipment, technology and infrastructure of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. They deploy a unique, highly-trained, and effective team of Special Agents, investigators, forensic experts, security specialists, analysts, and support personnel.

The NCIS mission is to protect and preserve the superiority of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps warfighter. This is accomplished through preventing terrorism, protecting secrets, and reducing crime.

Their mission is executed ashore, afloat, and in cyberspace, conducting worldwide operations and investigations in counter-terrorism, counterintelligence, and felony crimes.

“Our agency’s highest priority is to protect and preserve the functional advantage of the naval warfighter to fight and win wars,” said Special Agent Christopher Ahr, NCIS Resident Agency Pearl Harbor Criminal Investigations Squad.

“In each of our mission areas, NCIS must effectively identify trends, forecast warnings, and aggressively combat threats from foreign intelligence, terrorists, and criminals.”

NCIS provides support to the Navy and Marine Corps by protecting and preserving the integrity of the naval warfighter.

NCIS’ mission aligns with building a ready, agile, and stronger fleet while preserving the war-fighter’s readiness and lethality.

NCIS goes where the Navy and Marine Corps go.

“NCIS has provided me with a fascinating career and unique opportunities while supporting the war-fighter,” said Kara Scammell Special Agent on the FBI Honolulu Joint Terrorism Task Force.

“NCIS’ broad mission is like no other federal law enforcement organization, which makes NCIS unique to what the Navy and Marine Corps need.”

Through the accomplishment of its diverse criminal, counterintelligence, and security mission, NCIS continues to provide critical worldwide service to the Department of the Navy, its military and civilian personnel, their dependents and the communities in which they reside.
