—Description of Auror headquarters[src]

The Auror Office, or Auror Department, serves as the headquarters of Aurors of the Wizarding world. The Auror office is a main division of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.


The Auror Headquarters are located on Level Two of the Ministry of Magic. It consists of a series of open cubicles, each Auror being given a place to work. Pictures of known Dark Wizards, maps, clippings from the Daily Prophet, and various other things line the cubicles.

The job

An Auror's job is to hunt down and capture Dark Wizards, once a criminal is captured they are generally handed over to the authorities. It is not uncommon for criminals to resist arrest; some choose to fight to the death rather than let themselves be captured, such as Death Eater Evan Rosier.

The Ministry also enlists them to guard high profile targets such as Harry Potter, during the 1996-1997 school term and the British Prime Minister who had an Auror bodyguard, posing as his secretary, to protect him against the possibility that Lord Voldemort might take control of him, to gain access to various Muggle resources at the highest level.
