  • Bureau of Diplomatic Security Intelligence Research Specialist

    Does anyone shed some light into this position. I know they handle passport and visa fraud but can anyone help in getting more info like if they go out on the field with agents etc... I know this is a non 1811 position and all but do they get creds and has anyone worked with any?

    thanks in advance.

    It is not a credentialed postion like a Counter Intel person for example. You may go out into the field but I think that is pretty rare. You have access to a lot of databases. You do intel gathering on people/cases revolving around visa and passport fraud. The intel analysts that I work with are really good. You can be assigned to a task force. Primarily it is a lot of digging into databases for info on people. The better you are at it the more stuff you get to do. Since DS agents move around a lot you may know a lot more of the background of a major case than the DS agents assigned to it.

      There are IA's (Investigative Analyst) and IRS's (Intelligence Research Specialists) in every field office. In my particular field office neither of them go out with agents because they are not armed or trained as agents. As JB said, they do most of the digging around in databases and such to find out a ton of information for cases. They are a huge help for us agents, and they do a ton of work, but they are not agents. IRS's are just as the title implies-they do a lot of LE intelligence research for cases.
