US Police  The United States Federal Reserve Police is an agency that acts as the law enforcement department of the Federal Reserve System. As the agency that protects the central banking system of the entire nation, officers have many highly important duties and responsibilities.

It is a little known fact that the United States Federal Reserve Police was formed in 2001. Many believe that the agency has been around for a much longer period of time.

There are 37 stations within 12 regional districts. Each United States Federal Reserve Police office is an independent unit, although they are governed out of the headquarters in Washington, D.C. In addition to federal authority, officers within many of the units have city or state authority as well.

The main responsibility of a United States Federal Reserve Police officer is to protect Federal Reserve facilities within their district. Officers are also trained to respond to fire, medical, and police related incidents in or around Federal Reserve grounds.

Just like the majority of uniformed officers, those within the United States Federal Reserve Police are certified to carry firearms, batons, pepper spray and other standard equipment.

Upon being hired, each officer must complete training at a district Federal Reserve Police Academy. Along with this, they must also be sworn in as a United States Federal Reserve Police officer.

At this time, there are more than 1,000 sworn members of the United States Federal Reserve Police force.

  1. The U.S. Federal Reserve Police was formed in 2001?

    Wow…I don’t know about you, but I think I’m going to call it more than a little coincidence here. Ahem!…. And the fact that they need their own police force. HAAHAHAHAHA!!!!! OMG, I’m sorry but that’s too funny. If they need their own police force, then my dog needs a police force.

    I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I bet that police force has the same training as a TSA person, gets the same benefits as them too even though they are not federal, have no federal police training, no criminal background check, and probably have as much training as a mall security guard. Oh man, I love these guys. They get more pathetic by the day.

    Apparently there are many other such police forces, the reason for posting was the novelty of the heading which at first sight makes for a question about the Federal Reserve monetary controllers that destroy wealth by redistributing from the working people to give to the elite. The idea of hanging a banker comes to mind.

      1. Here is a visual for ya feeding scavenger ravens ect. ect. from that peice of meat at the end of that swinging rope. Strange visual, but scavengers have to eat too.

  3. Okay, so, the Federal Reserve is a private banking establishment, right? So, who’s paying for these police? And who’s paying for these police academies? And what are they teaching there?

    1. Basically what they are teaching at these academies is how to use a left handed bacon stretcher. Important skill in this type of work.

  4. @ David2.: Wouldn’t work. Freakin’ bankers are so stinking slippery, their necks would probably slide right out of the ropes!

    p.s. This IS a little known fact. I try to stay informed on this sort of thing, and this is the first I’ve heard of it.
    Good lookin’ out.
