The LSA serve a critical role in the bureau and perform both investigative and paralegal functions. Specifically, LSAs are responsible for conducting investigative assignments such as drafting subpoenas, reviewing documents, searching commercial and law enforcement databases, analyzing phone and bank records, and monitoring electronic surveillance.
