Duringthe early 1900s, the creation of a new national security organization, theFederal Bureau of Investigations, was achievable by the efforts of Charles J.Bonaparte. With the establishment of this new organization, the eradication ofcorrupt businesses and government officials had been possible. Also, with thegrowth of this new organization, many outreaches, such as the teen/youthacademies, had been achieved.
Emanatingfrom a lineage of successful kin, the success of Charles Bonaparte had beenfore-sought. Before conceiving the idea of creating the Federal Bureau ofInvestigations, Charles served as a judge and a political activist forprogressive and liberal causes. Just as his uncle, Napoleon Bonaparte, servedFrance as a military leader and emperor, Charles served his as a political man.Realizing public corruption of elected officials had been widespread, Charlestook interest in civil reform, later stating politicians of that period were, alliesand patrons of habitual lawbreakers (Bonaparte, Charles Joseph). Years later,Charles along with other political reformers establish a non-profitorganization known as the National Civil Service Reform League, raisingawareness of electorate regarding crimes. During a meet between the CivilService Reform organization in Baltimore, Charles had met President TheodoreRoosevelt who later appointed him as secretary of the United States Navy and waschosen to be attorney general. With the new job title, Charles continuedseeking reform on a national basis, launching antitrust investigations oncorrupt businesses and corporations.
After realizing he had lacked in apermanent investigative staff, Roosevelt directed Charles into forming a teambuilt of the justice department, later becoming known as the Federal Bureau ofInvestigations.Originallyknown as the Bureau of Investigations, the small group of 23 special agentsinvestigated crimes complying with national banking fraud, land fraud, variousforms of enslavement, and extortion. Being built off the aspirations of CharlesBonaparte, bribery, undue influence and the need for fair and impartialadministration of the government had also been few of the misdeeds the FBIexamined.
