Criminal Investigative Division (CID)
CID is comprised of most of the FBI's undercover Agents. Their jobs are to investigate criminals that operate within the area of operations. These Agents may work together with Field Operations Agents from time to time to complete operations, but they are completely undercover. These agents are required to know how to make case-files and are expected to keep their cover.

Gang Unit(CU)
GU is the more elite division of undercover agents. They are responsible for investigating gangs within the United States. GU agents must keep their cover much longer than CID agents as they can be in gangs from 2 weeks to a month. They document all of a gangs' illegal activities while they gain the trust of their fellow gang members and infiltrate further into the family. If one mistake is made, an agent can very easily lose their life.

Internal Affairs (IA)
IA is responsible for investigating law enforcement and other government personnel. IA evaluates the performance of FBI agents each week and keep tabs on them. However, investigating does not stop there. IA is involved in several civil services and helps weed out corruption in all aspects of the nation. IA can work with policing departments, the government, as well as the military to help keep government personnel in check and out of a corrupt way of life. Agents may not apply for Internal Affairs during the application process. Instead, IA agents are picked through years of dedication and a clean record within the Bureau.

Firearms and Narcotics (FAN)
FAN is comprised of most of the FBI's undercover Agents. Their jobs are to investigate criminals that operate within the area of operations. These Agents may work together with Critical Incident Division Agents from time to time to complete operations, but they are completely undercover. These agents are required to know how to make case-files and are expected to keep their cover.

Field Training Operations (FTO)
FTO, the muscle of the FBI is comprised of Agents that are almost always in uniform, or in a suit. They carry out any of raids or arrests that are needed from casefiles derived from OCU or CID. There Agents are known for their professionalism and skillsets that make them versatile Agents.

Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT)

Special Weapons And Tactics is a division which is called in for Larage Scale crimes or robberies[i.e Like Bank Robberies, House Kidnapping or Bombs Situations.] SWAT uses special weapons and vehicles in their job.
It is a team that consists of five or six members, Each of which is best in one perticular speciality [i.e Sniper,Bomb Disposal].

National Security Branch (NSB)

Ranking Structure

Intern (( R0 ))

Intern is the training point of all FBI Personnel. All agents will be put at this rank and will stay here for an amount of time as they complete a series of tests and training to become a qualified federal agent. During this time the agent is to not act upon situations or have weapons unless approved by an Assistant Director or above.

Staff(( R1 ))

Staff is the starting point of all FBI Personnel. New agents will be put at this rank and will stay here until they show that they understand the Bureau. It is during this time that an agent learns about the Bureau and has the chance to experiment with their division. The main job of an Staff is to carry out the role of their division to the best of his or her ability.

Agent (( R2 ))

FBI Agent is the main body of the FBI. All experienced agents who aren't necessarily new are placed here. Intern's have proven they are capable of the workload that is required in the Bureau and they normally have a division by now. Making case-files and fulfilling tasks is the only job required for Intern's. They are expected to remain role-models and help out the Interns if needed.

Senior Agent (( R3 ))

Senior Agent is the starting point to competition within the Bureau. You must fight to obtain this rank through hard skill and dedication. Not everyone will be able to get here. There are about 2 to 4 Agents in each division. Each of them have shown they know their job very well. Agents are required to continue their work and are expected to go above and beyond, as the Senior Agent rank can just as quickly be taken away as it is given. Senior Agents may be appointed as division leaders depending on availability, this leads to them near advancing onto the Special Agent rank with shown integrity and passion.

Special Agent (( R4 ))

Special Agent is the highest non-commanding rank a person can obtain in the FBI. Special Agent's are required to do a large amount of work and they may not slack behind. Any Special Agent  that slacks behind will be removed as they are trusted to act responsible and help out the lower ranks whenever needed.

Assistant Director (( R5 ))

There is only one Assistant Directors in the FBI. He is the head of Recruitment and Personnel. The head of Recruitment is responsible for the hiring of new agents as well as the training of current agents. Recruitment Directors normally spend the majority of their time working with the agents of the Bureau. The Assistant Director of Personnel is responsible for issuing the promotions, demotions, and firing agents if needed. They make sure everyone does their job and appoints the Special Agents of the Bureau as well.

Director (( R6 ))

The Director of the FBI is required to look over the Bureau as a whole. He makes sure that the Assistant Directors and Special Agents are doing what they are required to do. The Director is in charge of relations with other civil services as well as handling the budget of the Bureau.

Weapons and Equipment

Pepper Spray

The pepper spray is a widely used tool by civil service factions across the United States. When delivered in the eyes, it causes a severe pain that can cause any hardened criminal to drop their weapons. It causes temporary blindness and extreme watering in the eyes. The pepper spray is a non-lethal form of take down.

Nite Stick

Nite sticks are also widely used within law enforcement agencies within the Unites States. They are made of hard rubber and plastic. The goal of the nite stick is to provide an agent with a way to hit criminals if they are causing difficulty without the damage of a heavy blunt weapon like a bat. When contact is made in high pain areas such as the shins, elbows, and head, you can get a majority of criminals to open themselves up to be arrested.

Smoke Grenade

The Smoke grenades are a non lethal form of take-down. They are perfect for SWAT situations the involve hostages. Smoke grenades, when used, release a large cloud of white gas that is almost impossible to see through. The gas is also thick enough to cause irritation to the throat and eyes, causing severe coughing for a short amount of time, and temporary watering of the eyes. When a suspect is hit with this gas, they become disorientated as their air flow is slightly restricted and they go blind. Smoke grenades can be overcome with gas masks.


The tazer is yet another widely used item by law enforcement agencies world-wide. It takes the form of a gun, but shoots two prongs, each with an electrical charge. Each prong must break the skin of the suspect or one must break the skin and the other must touch the ground. Failure for those two circumstances to appear will cause the electrical circuit to not be complete. If the tazer is fired successfully, it will send a small shock through the suspect's body, making their muscles contract, and they will become paralyzed for a short amount of time. It is a great form of non-lethal take-down for those who resist, as they cannot fight back once tazed.

Desert Eagle

Desert Eagles are a .50 caliber, semi automatic pistol. They are loaded with magazines and hold up to 7 shots per magazine. This is the item of choice for most agents, as it is easily concealable and can be drawn extremely quickly in the event of an emergency. An FBI Agent must always carry a Desert Eagle when on duty.


The SPAS-12 is another semi-automatic weapon, but it is a shotgun. The SPAS fires up to seven 12-gauge rounds at one time that disperse once fired. The caliber and power of the SPAS-12 allows it to do extreme damage at close range. It is ideal for SWAT situation where the agent is in close quarters with the enemy.


The MP5 is the FBI's most widely used fully automatic machine gun. It is extremely compact, allowing it to be concealed easily. Its size also allows for it to be shot through small areas such as car door windows. The MP5 is used in vehicle chases to disable the car if the suspect happens to not comply or is opening fire from the car. The rate of fire is extremely fast and is useful in medium to close range situation. It is loaded with magazines that hold 30 bullets each.


The M4A1 is used by police agencies in high crime-rate areas as well as the primary weapon of the US Military. It is perfect for medium to long range situations as it has great accuracy at long distances. The amount of bullets in each clip sum up to 50 rounds, making it the ideal weapon for agents giving suppressive fire to an area.

Tactical Vest

The tactical vest is used by every agent for various reasons. First is the protection. It holds Kevlar underneath the cloth that can stop almost every bullet before it penetrates the skin. However, the force of the bullet often times wears down the vest and causes extreme bruising. The tactical vest also has several pockets for holding gas grenades, various weapons, and multiple ammo magazines.

Force Continuum

The Force Continuum is the basis of all Law Enforcement. While the name varies and the steps are combined or broken further down from agency to agency, it still remains understood throughout the entire United States. The FBI uses a six-level Force Continuum. Each level ranges in the amount of force that is used, level 1 being the least lethal and level 6 being the most deadly. It is very common for a situation to start at level 1, go to level 3, and jump down to level 2. It never stays the same, which is why FBI agents are required to know the continuum inside and out and how to apply it to real life situations. If you are unsure of what to do, a good basic principle to go on is "Always use less than or equal force."

Force Level 1 - Agent Presence

Agent Presence is, in most cases, the only sort of force needed to stop crime. When most civilians notice an FBI Agent, they stop what they are doing in order to not get in trouble. This is used mostly in situations where crime is likely to happen, but has not yet occurred. Body language should remain non-threatening and assume a professional look. No words need to be said at this stage. If crime can be stopped at this stage and the suspect complies, a warning or small fine should do the trick.

Force Level 2 - Verbal Commands

Verbal commands are issued mostly when a suspect has committed a small crime and does not appear to care about agent presence or is issuing threatening or harsh commands to the agent. It is at this moment that you let the suspect know what he has done wrong. Short commands such as "Stop.", "Freeze.", "Don't move.", "Listen to me.", "Hands up.", or even "You're under arrest." should most of the time do the trick. If the suspect appears to be reluctant to listen, the tone and volume of the agent voice can be increased. At this stage, no threats need to be made and agents must appear non-hostile. If used correctly, Force Level 2 can prevent the situation from escalating.

Force Level 3 - Empty Hand Control

This is the level where physical force begin to come into play. This should only be used once a suspect has either hit or physically grabbed the agent or another human. There are two sub-categories to this level which should be chosen based on the aggression of the suspect. Soft Empty Hand Techniques are used when the suspect is still not listening after verbal commands are issued. These soft hand techniques compose of gently pushing, grabbing the suspect's arm, restraining the suspect, or applying pressure points to prevent a fight. These techniques do not hurt the suspect but still require a hands on approach. Hard Empty Hand Techniques are used once a suspect has shown physical violence. This includes kicking, punching, or strikes to key points that could potentially cause minor damage.

Force Level 4 - Pepper Spray, Nite Stick, Tazer

At this stage, the criminal is extremely aggressive. He still has no weapons, but is expected to cause damage to an agent or another person. If fights get increasingly out of hand or the suspect continues to resist, despite empty hand control, one of the three tools will need to be used to immobilize the suspect. This Force Level is also used when a suspect is mobile and is at risk at getting away.

Force Level 5 - Less Lethal

This is a recently added level to the Bureau. It is meant to deliver an acceptable amount of force when deadly force isn't necessary but pepper spray, nite sticks, or tazers won't work either. Firearms may be drawn at this point but the goal is to not kill the suspect. Aiming the weapon, or shooting in non-lethal areas could suffice. Other equipment can also be used in an abnormal way during this level. It is expected that this level could cause harm to anyone it is used on but not necessarily kill them. Situations where this is acceptable is when the suspect has a knife or dangerous weapon, is holding a dangerous weapon to a hostage, or is fleeing by vehicle and causing an extremely dangerous scene for pedestrians.

Force Level 6 - Deadly Force

Level 6 is the height of the Force Continuum. At this stage, the agent is to discharge his weapon and attempt to kill the suspect to prevent any more harm from happening. If the agent fails to kill the suspect but has immobilized him or her, the agent is expected to stop the use of force level 6 immediately. This level can be used if the suspect is opening fire with a firearm or if the agent feels like either his life or another person's life is in danger. This level is to be avoided whenever possible, but sometimes killing the suspect is the only way to save a life.

Miranda rights

The miranda rights are a very important part. You must read the suspect these miranda rights or he will likely face additional charges on him. Therefore, everytime you cuff or attempt to arrest a suspect, you tell him his miranda rights. You're required to do that, no matter how the situation is. The police officer who forgets to read the suspect the miranda rights will most-likely get infracted if he repeats it. In addition, if the suspect fails to understand these rights, the police officer is required to simplify them in other words.
