The Office of Fraud Detection and National Security (FDNS) is a division within USCIS National Security and Records Verification Directorate (NSRV). FDNS was created in 2004 to enhance the quality, integrity, and security of the U.S. legal immigration system. FDNS' primary mission is to detect, deter, and combat immigration benefit fraud and to strengthen USCIS' efforts aimed at ensuring benefits are not granted to persons who threaten national security or public safety. FDNS is USCIS' primary conduit to the law enforcement and intelligence communities. Adjudications officers collaborate with FDNS officers who in turn, work in collaboration with DHS Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and if pertinent, with other federal, state, and local government offices to bring suspected cases to conclusion, i.e., criminal prosecution or administrative sanctions.
