Since its inception in the 1980s, the FBI's Undercover Safeguard Program has provided assessment, selection, support, and training services to thousands of covert employees engaged in a range of high-risk investigations. The initial development and ongoing refinement of this program has been shaped by the contributions of consulting, clinical, and counseling psychologists who have shared and inculcated their extraordinary commitment to the safety and welfare of the FBI's undercover cadre. This paper provides an overview of the events leading to the emergence of the FBI's Undercover Safeguard Program, the role of psychologists in this process, and the challenges facing the internal and external consultants that have shaped this program.
