I know where I live because of the particular buildings in the area (Y-12, K-25 and such) I have seen both types of vehicles you have described. They usually patrol near the buildings and when there’s an anti-war protest outside Y-12, they usually line up 3 SUV’s and 2 Crown Vic’s to block and increase security.
An interesting note, last week I was followed by one of the Crown Vic’s on my way to work. When I drive to work I do have to drive by Y-12, a tinted and dark Crown Vic got behind me as I was going up the street passing by Y-12 and followed me till it realized I was not going to Y-12 but continuing on. When it decided to turn I slowed down to see where it would go, it basically did a U-turn and went inside Y-12. Weird, but cool.

As you say, it kinda teaches one something about one's observational skills under pressure, eh?
Amazing how hard it is to remember a license plate, only three letters and three numbers, while one's only other occupation at the time is riding a bicycle.

Isn't it kind of reckless for the Feds to train like this? Couldn't civilians be hurt or killed if something goes wrong?

I can only guess what I actually saw -- and yes, the whole incident may have an innocent explanation. But my smell sensor is working overtime on this, and what I witnessed just doesn't fit into the "innocent" catagory.
For those of you from Atlanta, many of the roadways I'm about to mention will be familiar to you. And perhaps I wasn't the only ATSer to witness this today.
I was just merging onto I-85 South from Steve Reynolds Blvd. around 9:30 this morning when I almost immediately noticed a white and blue "Federal Police Homeland Security" SUV cruising in the far left lane. This caught my attention because I never have seen one before, let alone knew that Homeland Security had its own police force with vehicles.

I saw a homeland security car for the first time too, traveling through Hall county last month. It looks exactly in design to the picture JJ posted. Apparently, somewhere so remote like Hall County, needs Homeland Security to patrol the highway.

OP, I just had a discussion with the husband and he asked me to ask you this....
Did the tag you see have a government sticker on it?
He said if the black car/dark windows was a government vehicle
then it would have the Georgia sticker on it. No matter if it was rural or even local county tags...
Then if it was that would definatley spark this because that would
be very very unusual to say the very least.
