A Question For Readers On The Dog Shooter

| August 6, 2010 | 33 Comments

This “federal police officer” has been identified by authorities as a “civilian officer.”

Maryann Hodges, a spokeswoman for Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, the Army and Marine base in Northern Virginia, said the civilian police officer was placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure, because of the Anne Arundel County investigation.

Does this mean that he is not technically a federal employee, but a contracted employee of some sort? If so, what are the rules for carrying a weapon off duty? Certainly, the end user of his services has the right to put him on leave pending the outcome, but was he really a “federal police officer” or was he a contractor working for a company hired by the federal government to provide police services?
