The United States Secret Service (USSS) is a government law enforcement agency in the United States of America divided between special agents and the Uniformed Division. Although part of the USSS is known for handling cases of severe counterfeiting and fraud, the Secret Service is probably most notable for being in the role of guardianship. Secret Service agents are assigned to protect former and current national leaders, as well as their families, and other officials.

Government agent Helena Harper was promoted to the Secret Service in 2012, assigned to protect President Adam Benford.[1]

Further notes

It is a common misunderstanding that Leon S. Kennedy was a member of the Secret Service. His organization in 2004 - the Anti-Umbrella Pursuit and Investigation Team - was unnamed in Resident Evil 4, being referred to instead as a "secret military agency". The BradyGames Resident Evil 4 Official Strategy Guide refers to him having joined the "secret security service" - the USSS was not named.[2]
