Office of Partner Engagement

The FBI’s Office of Partner Engagement (OPE) builds bridges, creates new partnerships, and strengthens and supports relationships between the FBI and other federal agencies, as well as with state, local, tribal, and campus law enforcement; national and international law enforcement associations; and others within the broad public safety, law enforcement, and homeland security communities. Part of the Intelligence Branch, the OPE serves as the FBI’s primary liaison for the law enforcement community, representing the perspectives of chiefs, sheriffs, and law enforcement associations within the FBI.

The OPE also manages outreach programs, including FBI support to state and local Fusion Centers. The office implements national-level initiatives and strategies which support engagement, communication, coordination, and cooperation efforts with law enforcement, intelligence, and public agencies and partners in a continuous effort to enhance the FBI’s capabilities.
