The Federal Bureau of Investigation Police (FBI Police) are federal law enforcement officers that are tasked with protecting FBI facilities, properties, personnel, users, visitors and operations from harm and may enforce certain laws and administrative regulations.
They are endowed with full police powers of crime prevention, arrest, law enforcement and investigation within the following FBI facilities:
- The J. Edgar Hoover Building (FBI Headquarters)
- The FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia
- The FBI Laboratory, also in Quantico
- The New York City field office in Lower Manhattan
- The Criminal Justice Information Services Division in Clarksburg, West Virginia
Civil service classification
The 240-plus FBI Police officers are classified as professional staff, which also includes intelligence analysts, language specialists, scientists, information technology specialists, and other agency professionals.
Pay and benefits
FBI Police officers are covered under the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) and do not receive enhanced Law Enforcement Retirement (6C). The FBI Police are among the lowest paid Federal Law Enforcement Officers and have the highest attrition rate at 13.9%.
Class action lawsuit
On August 2, 2007, a group of more than 100 FBI Police officers filed a class action complaint in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims for millions of dollars of back and future pay. The complaint alleged that the FBI has not complied with a 2002 statute, part of the FBI Reform Act, that mandated that the FBI police force be paid the same pay and benefits as members of the Uniformed Division of the United States Secret Service. The judge ruled against the FBI Police on all issues in February 2017.
