4 Agencies You Didn't Know Worked with the FBI

by DiAnn Mills

In the research stage of the FBI Task Force series, I needed to understand what Federal agencies and law enforcement associations worked with the FBI. The various agencies have unique expertise, and when united, crimes are solved and people protected. If a crime is not under the jurisdiction of the FBI, they must be invited to assist.

Four agencies that work with the FBI caught me by surprise.

  1. Local health departments
  2. US Marshals
  3. CIA
  4. Tribal law enforcement

“The FBI’s Office of Partner Engagement (OPE) builds bridges, creates new partnerships, and strengthens and supports relationships between the FBI and other federal agencies, as well as with state, local, tribal, and campus law enforcement; national and international law enforcement associations; and others within the broad public safety, law enforcement, and homeland security communities. The OPE serves as the FBI’s primary liaison for the law enforcement community, representing the perspectives of chiefs, sheriffs, and law enforcement associations within the FBI.”

The information helped me to create Deadly Encounter. In this story, the FBI was asked to assist Houston’s health department and Police Department to solve a potential domestic terrorism crime.

In the second book, Deep Extraction, theHouston Police Department and the FBI were currently working a crime when a murder occurred. The FBI enlisted the help of a Deputy US Marshal.

In the third book, High Treason . . . actually, I’m not going to give the federal agency who works with the FBI just yet. But it is huge.

The more I write about the FBI and their extensive work, the more I want to know more.

About Deep Extraction:

FBI Task Force, Book 2 (Tyndale House Publishers)

A pacemaker should have saved oil and gas magnate Nathan Moore’s life. Instead, it provided his killer with a seemingly perfect means of execution.

A bombing at one of Nathan’s oil rigs days earlier indicates his death could be part of a bigger conspiracy, a web Special Agent Tori Templeton must untangle. But her first order of business is separating the personal from the professional—the victim’s wife, her best friend, is one of the FBI’s prime suspects.

Clearing Sally’s name may be the biggest challenge of her career, but Tori finds an unexpected ally in the newest member of the task force, recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers. As Tori and Cole dig deeper into Nathan’s personal and business affairs, they uncover more than they bargained for. And the closer they get to finding the real killer—and to each other—the more intent someone is on silencing them for good.
