    Much of what they do is classified and questions cannot be answered.

    If it is not available on their website, you will not likely get an answer.

    By the way, H&K loves them. Real operators, they are.

    Ask your questions...if someone in the "know" happens to see them, they'll get answered.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    I worked with a guy who went FAM for 8 months, loved the money, hated the work, quit and came back as a sergeant in another department.

    Same story here. Loved the money but the work (mainly admin) turned him sour and he came back and made Sgt.

    I love telling them they are printing when I'm on a commercial flight.

    I actually have a hard time making them. The Merrells, 5.11s, leather shoelace "necklaces," and GS-goat really let them blend in.

    Same story here. A buddy went to the Air Marshals about 5 years ago. He doesn't like the job, but the pay is too good to leave. He makes well over $100k/year. He much prefers the job of a city street cop, but the pay of the feds. He's never taken action on a flight and hasn't made an arrest as a fed.

    At one of our east coast layover hotels, Fams often say there as well. Playing "Spot the FAM" is an entertaining game among the pilots on the shuttle to the airport. Sometimes they print, but usually the tell is the square cut shirts that are not tucked into their pants.

    I made over $100k my final year and it wasn't that difficult. Motors can make upwards of $130k with all the DUI court and license hearings.

    Almost as fast as flying blindingly boring commercial flights all day, every day

    Patrol is the most varied and interesting aspect of law enforcement, and the skills developed there are the basis of all other activities.

    I have dealt with Feds who were former, plain old, garden variety, local cops and they generally felt the experience was a benefit.
