United States Mint Police

About this Agency

The United States Mint Police is one of the oldest law enforcement agencies in the country, being established in 1792. The main responsible of the agency is to protect the United States Mint and the United States Treasury.

Day in and day out, United States Mint Police agents take on the task of protecting nearly 3,000 Mint employees, tens of thousands of visitors, and over $100 billion in coins, gold, and silver. Simply put, agents have the important responsibility of keeping a large portion of the United States money safe and sound.

United States Mint Police agents are stationed all over the country, and protect facilities located in San Francisco, California; Philadelphia, PA; West Point, NY; Fort Knox, KY; Denver, CO; and the headquarters located in Washington, D.C.

Over the years, the duties of the United States Mint Police have increased and agents now train with other law enforcement divisions and even have bicycle patrols in many parts of the country. They have even taken part in security teams at events outside of the Mint including presidential inauguration, Winter Olympics, and the International Monetary Fund Conference.

The United States Mint Police is part of the United States Mint and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. At this time, agents, as well as 2,800 other employees, are stationed in six offices located across the country.
