| ||For the Secret Service division in Fallout 76, see Secret Service (Fallout 76).|
Founded in 1865, shortly after the American Civil War, as part of the Department of the Treasury to combat the widespread counterfeiting of the U.S. dollar, the Secret Service later became the de facto federal police force alongside the United States Marshals Service until the creation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1908.
Prior to 2241, the Secret Service had been reorganized by the Enclave into a more suitable role for their goals in the post-nuclear era. It was tasked with protecting the function of the government (including the president), and included stealth operations on the mainland. Such as to silence an outpost of the Brotherhood of Steel, deployment of experimental genetically modified creatures into hostile environments, dispose of said creatures when appropriate, and to retrieve and/or assassinate certain wastelanders.
One of its most infamous members was Frank Horrigan. He 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.
The Enclave Secret Service is not the same entity as those operating in Appalachia.
