Letter from Charles J. Bonaparte to Theodore Roosevelt
Library of Congress Manuscript Division
Charles J. Bonaparte explains the changing duties of the Office of the Attorney General and the Department of Justice. Bonaparte notes that the department is becoming responsible for the detecting of crimes but has no dedicated force to do so. Secret Service agents and Pinkerton agents were simply on loan and answer to different departments. Since the ban by Congress of the use of Secret Service agents, Bonaparte believes a dedicated detective force should be created and based out of the Department of Justice.
