The Defense Clandestine Service
The Defense Clandestine Service (DCS) conducts human intelligence (HUMINT) operations to answer national-level defense objectives for the President, the Secretary of Defense, and senior policymakers. The civilian and military workforce of the DCS conducts clandestine and overt intelligence operations in concert with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and our Military Services to accomplish their mission in defense of the Nation.
We value teamwork, integrity, agility, service, and the pursuit of excellence. We always put service before self, team before individuals, and Nation above all else. We are mission focused.
DCS Case Officers conduct source operations in every region of the world, alone or in teams. They use their innate intellect, flexibility, and creativity—augmented by knowledge of the culture and comprehensive training—to recruit and manage HUMINT sources whose information answers national-level defense objectives. Our elite corps of Case Officers deploy globally alongside warfighters and interagency partners to protect our National security.
