The Secret Service office will work closely with its law enforcement partners within the criminal investigative infrastructure in the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Estonia was selected as the site for the new Secret Service office due to both the investigative nexus it provides in combating cyber and financial crimes, as well as the opportunity it provides the agency in the fulfillment of its protective duties within the region.

Tallinn will also serve as a prime location from which to engage counterparts in Russia and throughout the Nordic region.

Media invitation: Press is welcome to attend the opening event on Friday, May 20 at 12:30 at the Residence of the U.S. Ambassador, Maarjame 10/Pirita tee 30.
