While most people associate the Secret Service with presidential protection, its original mandate was to investigate the counterfeiting of U.S. currency, a mission the Secret Service is still mandated to carry out. Today the agency's primary investigative mission is to safeguard the payment and financial systems of the United States. This has been historically accomplished through the enforcement of counterfeiting statutes to preserve the integrity of United States currency, coin and financial obligations. Since 1984, the Secret Service's investigative responsibilities</p> <p>have expanded to include crimes that involve financial institution fraud, computer and telecommunications fraud, false identification documents, access device fraud, advance fee fraud, electronic funds transfers and money laundering as it relates to the agency's core violations. To combat these crimes, the Secret Service has adopted a proactive approach that utilizes advanced technologies.</p> <p>INSTRUCTOR NOTES:How many members of the Secret Service have died while actually defending the president from an assassination attempt?One.
