- Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
- Department of Justice (DOJ)
- Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
- Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF)
- Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
- Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP)
- U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
- U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
- U.S. Marshalls Service (USMS)
- U.S. Secret Service
If you’re a LEO, you know that the rules are a little different for you than for other federal employees. LEOs are held to different standards. You undergo periodic fitness-for-duty (FFD) examinations. You have to re-qualify for your position. You might be subject to Office of Professional Responsibility investigations. LEOs also have specialized concerns related to disability or medical conditions and the ability to perform physical duties in the field or unique issues related to disciplinary matters. LEOs also have specialized concerns relating to benefits, such as overtime/availability pay and LEO retirement.
