Careers in Surveillance
To keep the nation safe and take on both domestic and international threats, the FBI relies on a constant stream of intelligence gathered by a team of surveillance professionals.
Surveillance professionals work alongside case agents to discreetly gather intelligence in support of ongoing counterterrorism, foreign counterintelligence and criminal investigations.

- Traveling domestically on both operational and training missions
- Working in a team environment outside of a typical, ordinary office setting
- Working nights and weekends as necessary
- Adapting to an ever-changing work environment
