About This Quiz

The FBI as we know it today has roots that go back to the early 20th century during the Roosevelt administration. At the time, Attorney General Charles Bonaparte was trying to assemble a cadre of lawmen to combat various rising crimes. At the blessing of the president in 1908, Bonaparte amassed a group of investigators to work for the Department of Justice. This is typically referred to as the birth of the FBI, or the Federal Bureau of Investigation, though at the time the bureau was just known as the BOI (Bureau of Investigation).

The FBI has a vast number of different jobs under the Department of Justice for the sole purpose of protecting our nation and citizens from terrorism, cyber criminals, mobsters, corrupt government officials and serial killers. Jobs within the FBI include field agents, who are the boots-on-the-ground investigators, to cybercrime analysts, who investigate all forms of nefarious online activity. Do you have a knack for analyzing data, navigating the dark web or finding pieces of a puzzle that nobody else can see?
