The guard is just that, an employee of the bank with no powers of arrest.
On the contrary "that guard" is a Federal Law Enforcement Officer with statutory powers of arrest Nation-wide. This authority was granted in section 11q of the Federal reserve act of 1913 and enhanced by the Patriot Act. The Federal Reserve Police have at least on paper probably the largest jurisdictional authority of any uniformed police force. They can fly armed and have powers of arrest (while on duty) from coast to coast.

With all due respect. The real deal needs no defensive posturing. Prior to 01 they did not even attend FLETC. 07 They were NOT allowed to carry their firearms from work nor allowed to wear their uniform home, that is why they have locker rooms. Their uniforms get dry cleaned and are kept on the property. Policy may have changed. With the exception of the Patriot Act , still simply private hired guards. As I am sure you are aware 'Powers of arrest nation wide' is very deceptive terminology. Be that as it may. Having read the balance of your posts you are obviously intelligent and well informed. I am delighted you are no longer in the employ of the SOBs.
