    Federal Reserve PD

    Did you know the Federal Reserve has its own police force? According to a recent media reports, one of the little known impacts of the 2001 USA Patriot Act was to authorize domestic policing powers for the 12 privately owned Federal Reserve Banks.
    Section 364 of the Act, “Uniform Protection Authority for Federal Reserve,” reads: “Law enforcement officers designated or authorized by the Board or a reserve bank under paragraph (1) or (2) are authorized while on duty to carry firearms and make arrests without warrants for any offense against the United States committed in their presence…Such officers shall have access to law enforcement information that may be necessary for the protection of the property or personnel of the Board or a reserve bank.”
    The officers employed by the Fed PD are technically known as FRLEO- federal reserve law enforcement officers.
    FRLEOs even have their own Federal Reserve Policemen’s Benevolent Association, Local 385.
    According to the group’s Facebook page it is a “government organization.”
    The site says the group “was established to create a fraternal organization for its membership and to act on behalf of the members as a liaison between the New Jersey State PBA and all other police agencies within the state and the country.”
    Some critics of the ever expanding federal law enforcement sector say there are serious questions as to why the expense, training and potential liability of armed police are really necessary.
