The Federal Witness Security Program was established to protect people who have testified or who are scheduled to testify against a criminal, but whose lives would be in danger as a result. In some cases, the program is also used to protect the families of such witnesses. According to the U.S. Attorney General's office, those entitled to enter the witness protection program are those testifying against terrorists, drug traffickers, members of organized crime and other major criminals who may strike back against witnesses. The United States Marshals Service, the U.S. Department of Justice: Office of Enforcement Operations (OEO) and the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) are the three organizations that provide and manage the services of witness protection.
