It's interesting...but I'm not finding where the policy sits. Louis Freeh made major changes to the policies regarding FBI Special Agent handling and consumption of Alcohol on or off duty following a major DUI crash with an FBI Agent in 1994. I've read in first person, non-fiction accounts of the Bureau since that, as I noted, they CAN drink socially. What they cannot do is get drunk. Or, at least, that is what I have read them say themselves.

The idea being that the FBI is on duty 24/7 and Off-Duty simply isn't a condition a Special Agent ever knows in his career.

The problem now is, despite hunting, I can't find a current FBI personnel handbook with the actual regs they have to follow under threat of the OPR.

Does anyone here have contact with or experience out of the FBI to shed some light on just what the line is for 'Professional Responsibility' standards now? 1994 is a long time ...and Freeh went balistic back then, to read about it.

I can't find anything written about the Alcohol Policy either the only thing I can find is the drug policy and nothing in the drug policy mentions alcohol. It may be one of those unwritten rules that filters from the top down, like you said it may be that you can have a couple drinks socially but don't ever overdue it.
