The United States Secret Service (or simply Secret Service) is a United States federal law enforcement agency operating under the auspices of the Enclave following the Great War, the organization succeeding the United States government.



Founded shortly after the American Civil War as part of the Department of the Treasury to combat the widespread counterfeiting of the US Dollar, the Secret Service later became a defacto federal police force alongside the United States Marshals Service until the creation of the Bureau of Investigation, the precursor of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in 1908.

After the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901, the Service was informally asked by Congress to provide presidential protection, and in 1902 began providing full time protection to the president. They continued in this role for over the next century and a half, up until right before the Sino-American War escalated into the nuclear exchange that came to be known as the Great War.

New CaliforniaEdit

The Secret Service was reorganized into a more suitable role for the post-nuclear era, but were still tasked with protecting the function of the government (most notably the President). Most infamously however, their mandate more often than not included their being deployed on delicate, stealthy, behind-the-scenes operations to the mainland, to silence entire outposts/bunkers of Brotherhood of Steel personnel[2], or to even air-drop intelligent deathclaws into/near Vault 13 via Vertibird.

The Secret Service is also on record as being deployed to retrieve and/or assassinate certain wastelanders, ultimately never leaving a single known living witness to spread word of, or impede their missions.[3][4]

Frank Horrigan was considered an elite and seasoned 'special'-rank agent of not only the Secret Service, but proved himself to be one of the most deadly and infamous assets of the entire Enclave.[5]

After the Destruction of Control Station ENCLAVE, the official fate of the Secret Service as a whole remains unknown, although it is plausible that remaining or surviving agents relocated with the rest of the Enclave away from New California,[6] were killed in the explosion, or managed to escape beforehand.
