Transcript of Copy of government

The F.B.I. was created by Anttorney General Charles Bonaparte on July 26, 1908, during Theodore Roosevelts Presidential Term.
Its first official task was visiting and making surveys of the houses of prostitution in preparation for enforcing the "White Slave Traffic Act," or Mann Act, passed on June 25, 1910. This group was renamed the United States Bureau of Investigation, in 1932.
The following year it was linked to the Bureau of Prohibition and rechristened the Division of Investigation (DOI) before finally becoming an independent service within the Department of Justice in 1935. In the same year, its name was officially changed from the Division of Investigation to the present-day Federal Bureau of Investigation, or FBI.
When the Bureau was established, there were few federal crimes. The Bureau investigated violations of laws involving bankruptcy, naturalization, national banking, antitrust, and land fraud. Previous law enforcement experience was considered desirable as there were no training programs for agents in the early years. F.B.I. HISTORY THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION
