    If you ever take a drive around DC and keep your eyes open, you will notice that dozens of different agencies with armed agents and 'police' style vehicles.

    Let's see...
    -FBI, BATFE, DEA, US Marshals
    -ICE
    -Postal inspectors
    -Department of Education
    -US Mint
    -Agriculture
    -Secret service uniformed and nonuniformed, BEP, IRS
    -EPA
    -US Capitol Police
    -Park Police
    -DoD, DIA, etc
    and more.

    All you have to do is spend a day driving around DC and you will see different ones everywhere. Heck, I think I've even seen FDA police. Most of the time all these officers in the District appear to be tasked with protecting their respective agency buildings.

    Is this a guess on your part ?

    This way they will have as much hardware as the students and can protect the staff.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
