About the Holiday

FBI Day celebrates this United States Department of Justice agency that was created on this day in 1908. FBI stands for Federal Bureau of Investigation and its headquarters are in Washington, D.C. Their motto is "Fidelity, Bravery, and Integrity."

It was President Theodore Roosevelt who first hired private investigators because of the rise in illegal land sales in the western United States. These investigators were called special agents and became the founding members of the bureau. Per Discovery.com By 1932, the Bureau of Investigation had hundreds of detectives and became known as the U.S. Bureau of Investigation. Just a year later, the Bureau changed its name to the Division of Investigation. The Division of Investigation underwent a final name change in 1935, becoming the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
