The Secret Service was established as a law enforcement agency in 1865. While most people associate the Secret Service with presidential protection, its original mandate was t…o investigate the counterfeiting of U.S. currency, a mission the Secret Service is still mandated to carry out. Today the agency's primary investigative mission is to safeguard the payment and financial systems of the United States. This has been historically accomplished through the enforcement of counterfeiting statutes to preserve the integrity of United States currency, coin and financial obligations. The Service started protecting Presidents in 1902 Since 1984, the Secret Service's investigative responsibilities have expanded to include crimes that involve financial institution fraud, computer and telecommunications fraud, false identification documents, access device fraud, advance fee fraud, electronic funds transfers and money laundering as it relates to the agency's core violations. To combat these crimes, the Secret Service has adopted a proactive approach that utilizes advanced technologies.
Well, he created the Secret Service on the day he was shot, April 14, 1865.

Civil ServiceModeled after the British system of public administration of the 19thcentury, with roots to the Han dynasty (206 BC-AD 220) and the Sung dynasty (960-1279), the U…S sought a system to curb the 'spoils system' as the government grew. Initially passed during the Grant administration, the President took little action. However, the scandals of President Grant's administration lent weight to the arguments of persistent personnel reformers George W. Curtis, Dorman B. Eaton, and Carl Schurz. President Hayes favored reform and began, to some text, to use competitive examinations as a basis for appointment to office on the basis of merit and fitness. Nonetheless, President Garfield's assassination in 1881 by a disappointed office seeker prompted the passage of the Pendleton Act in 1883, reestablishing the Civil Service Commission. The Commission classified all position on government to those covered by merit and fitness and those subject to political appointment. Those who were in the competitive service were to take tests based on merit and fitness. In 1889, President Benjamin Taylor had a dilemma of seeing his bureaucracy populated by those from previous administrations. Although, he fired about one-third of his bureaucracy, he depended on the Civil Service Commission to supply the government of its workers. Thus, the corner was turned to commit to a merit and fitness system based on the principles and scientific management.
