I fought the law and the law won..
Today I shall tell you about all the possible legal officers you may encounter in DC.
Okay first off you get you typical DC Metro police officers... just normal run of the mill cops. The picture on the left is what they typically look like. But you must remember that there are probably like four or five different police departments within DC itself. You'll have metro, white house, US capital and whatever else I haven't encountered yet.
Okay throughout your stay you will see cop cars that look different then the above picture... these "cops" are really US Secret Service patrol cars. There cop cars will have their very ugly badge/logo on it. As to what they can do to normal people breaking normal laws, I don't know yet. They seem pretty serious though.
The next on the list are even more mysterious! We have the U.S. Marshals. They seem to only be engaged in federal related crimes and track down big bad guys. These guys are really hard to spot sometimes. They typically drive big black boat cars like the Crown Vic, super tinted windows and then if you look in their window, on the dash is usually a US Marshals sticker and one of those lights they reach out and stick on the roof of the car. Very cool stuff.
And you may run into officers of the following organizations: CIA, DIA, FBI, Military Police and really big guys with necks the size of trees holding equally big automatic rifles.
So there you go.
