Beau Biden
Beau Biden’s career in public service extends well beyond his past seven years as Delaware’s Attorney General.

He is a major in the Delaware Army National Guard and returned from a year-long deployment supporting Operation Enduring Freedom in Iraq in 2009. His unit, the 261st Theater Tactical Signal Brigade, was deployed in October 2008 and returned home in September 2009. In 2001, Beau served as Interim Legal Advisor for the United States Department of Justice in post-war Kosovo, helping the war-torn nation develop a law enforcement and criminal justice system.

Beau began his career in public service shortly after graduating from the Syracuse University College of Law, clerking for Judge Steven McAuliffe of the United States District Court in New Hampshire from 1994 to 1995. Beau then joined the United States Department of Justice, where from 1995 to 1997 he served as Counsel in the Office of Policy Development, working on a variety of issues, including those related to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, the Violence Against Women Act, and with regard to missing and exploited children. General Biden then served as a Federal Prosecutor in the United States Attorney’s Office in Philadelphia from 1997 until 2002.
Beau worked in private practice from 2002 to 2006.

As Attorney General, protecting the most vulnerable among us – especially children – is Beau’s top priority. That’s why he created the Child Predator Unit within the Department of Justice, and the Child Predator Task Force in partnership with 43 law enforcement agencies across the state. Dedicated to keeping kids safe in their homes, in the community, and online, the Task Force’s work has led to more than 150 convictions since its inception. Beau also has been one of the most active Attorneys General in the country when it comes to helping families hit hard by the foreclosure crisis and seeing that those who caused the crisis are held accountable.

The men and women who risk their lives and fight to defend us overseas should not have to fight to defend their families at home at the same time. Their sole focus should be on completing the mission and returning home safely.

To maintain this focus, federal law has...

When the men and women serving in our nation's military deploy to a war zone, there is not much they can take with them except a sense of duty, a responsibility to give back before you're asked, that speaks to the heart of our all-volunteer force and military families. When...
