    You earthier go to NYC or Atlanta for 5 weeks. The PT is a joke, aka none, but the firearms training is gerat! Good place to get started or finish never stay. Boston is very rigid about there policies unlike NYC. So if you go to train in NYC and you come back to Boston its a big change. Hey if you get a shot go, FLETC certified training can't be bad right!?

    Most of the agents in Treasury are OIG. We really don't work with them, matter of fact I have never worked with anyone from IG. Probably the funniest stings we did when we got a report from a tourist that a DC meter maid was taking bribes inorder to get out of parking tickets. During a month long undercover investigation along with investigators with DC governement we uncovered that he milked approximately $40,000 to $50,000 from tourists, federal employees and DC residences. We got him for briber of a government official. The funny part was when we took him to lock-up several MPD and Capitol Officers were so pumped up they were gonna make it their mission to get a meter maid.

    Jndaniel is a phony.
    The Federal Reserve System "police" are not federal officers by any stretch.
    They are private police working for a Board of Governors. They do have arrest powers within the "footprint" of the federal reserve building. You won't find one carrying legally under H.R. 218 either. Enough said?
    :rolleyes:

    Sorry I haven't responded lately. I had a month and a half of "use or lose." It's been a while. Since they are not considered federal police then you need to go tell OPM that because they are under the impression with a 0083 classification and the authority to 1. carry firearms 2. have arrest authority (no matter how limited) 3. be employed as an entity of the government 4. conduct investigations (even though they maybe limited) not only qualify as federal officers, but also cover the criteria of HR 218 even though their agency may not want them to. If the equity act ever passes congress and the president signs it they even cover the criteria of getting 6(c) retirement. :)

    "Uncivil Service" -
    The Federal Reserve as a Workplace
    The Federal Reserve isn’t just a unique and powerful economic institution. It’s also a large employer -- and has a unique approach to labor relations with the thousands of clerical and security workers it employs. In a recent publication, the Financial Markets Center (a nonprofit research and educational group) offers a case study of what happened when protective officers at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York tried to form a union.
    In our hands is placed a power
    Among other responsibilities, the 120 protective officers at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York watch over the biggest repository of gold anywhere in the world. A New York Fed publication boasts about the uniformed protection force that guards its gold vaults:
    In the spring of 1997, a group of guards began a concerted campaign to organize a bargaining unit affiliated with the Fraternal Order of Police. Most were already FOP members in an associate capacity -- the group operates as a social club and community service organization as well as a union.
    Over the next six months, the New York Fed resisted fiercely, hiring one of the country’s best-known union-busting firms to guide its efforts and insisting that a union would betray members’ interests. Eventually, the counter-union efforts paid off. In December, the first representation election ever held at a Federal Reserve Bank ended in a 58-58 deadlock -- a victory for the employer, since the union failed to garner a majority.
    At first, the FOP tried to overturn the election results through a series of steps peculiar to the Fed’s labor relations system. The union filed an objection to the election before the American Arbitration Association, which had overseen the polling, as well as filing unfair labor practice charges with the Fed.
    In these filings, the FOP claimed that guards received no privacy as they filled out their ballots and that irregularities marred the handling of ballot boxes after the election. The FOP also charged that New York Fed officials had attempted to intimidate the guards and illegally reward them for voting against the union.
    Specifically, union supporters say that guards were given an eight percent pay raise after the election deadlock, and that 39 guards were promoted -- none of them union backers. The local FOP president also contends that the New York Fed retaliated against union supporters by suspending or firing them for infractions that drew less severe penalties for anti-union employees. Bank officials have publicly denied the union’s charges.
    Different from day one
    The bitter New York Fed campaign illustrates just how starkly the Federal Reserve differs from other federal workplaces.
    In large measure, Congress established those differences in the 1913 Federal Reserve Act, which excluded Fed employees from the civil service and granted the central bank carte blanche powers with respect to hiring, pay and related matters.
    In addition, the Federal Reserve Act contains language that empowers Reserve Banks to dismiss their employees on an "at-pleasure" basis. Though Congress may have intended this provision to apply only to high-ranking officials, courts have interpreted it as authorizing employment-at-will treatment -- the constant threat of summary dismissal -- for maintenance and support staffers at Reserve Banks.
    Unprotected by civil service status and exposed to the employment-at-will doctrine, Federal Reserve employees have never been covered by a collective bargaining agreement. Indeed, the Fed has experienced very few unionization efforts in the past. In the 1960s, guards at the New York Fed made their first attempt to organize a union, according to the Fraternal Order of Police, which was not involved in that effort. In 1977, the Teamsters unsuccessfully sought a representation election for 35 guards at the Board of Governors in Washington.
    In recent years, however, the Fed has been busier resisting unionization. As the Federal Reserve Bank of New York thwarted its guards’ organizing effort in 1997, the Board of Governors was fending off a "reinventing government" initiative to place the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) within the Fed, telling the General Accounting Office that it wasn’t "prepared to inherit BEP’s 18 unions."
