Law Enforcement Unit
The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago’s Law Enforcement Unit (LEU) protects employees, visitors and building tenants, and ensures a safe work environment by providing security, emergency planning and response for the Bank. The officers also protect the property of the bank.
LEU officers are sworn in and receive nationally accredited training as prescribed by the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the United States Department of Justice. Officer training is wide-ranging and covers firearm use, non-lethal weapons use, defensive tactics, physical control techniques, emergency medical treatment, familiarization with legal matters and report writing, among other areas. In addition, the officers receive regular in-service training throughout the year.
