  • Take Home Vehicle

    Hello all,
    Just had a general question. Do some of the Federal Law Enforcement Agencies provide agents with a take home vehicle?
    Thanks!

    Bro, they all do (for the most part) for special agents/1811s)

    Some do for federal OFFICERS. Gotta specify which agency. No for Capital Police, NSA Police, Sec. Service, Pentagon Police, NSA Police. (unless you are k-9 or something random...)

      I know you threw in "for the most part," but to clarify, not all 1811 jobs allow this. I'm an 1811, and my agency only allows for take home GOV use if you're assigned to one of a small number of specialized assignments (i.e. duty agent, crime scene unit, protection detail, and a few others). Many 1811 agencies do allow take home vehicles, but not all.

        Locally where i am stationed:
        BIA
        FBI
        DEA
        ATF
        Federal Probation
        Border Patrol
        US Marshals
        all have take home vehicles.

        Army, and I know the Marine Recruiters have take homes..if that counts

          There may be a few Border Patrol K9 take-homes out there but as a whole it's not likely.

            Take home G rides in the Border Patrol for brass and Agents who work out of there home on the Northern Border. All K9s have unmarked take home G rides and there are many of them. There take home rides are very nice.
            SRT also has take homes.

              You've seen those new Ford trucks the newer K9s are getting? YOWZA.

                  Most OIG's have G-rides, journeyman at 13, and work M-F schedules. They are the hidden gem of federal LE.

                    Does anyone know if DSS allows take home vehicles in the states?

                        When I dated a DEA agent who had a take home ride I found it funny that the feds call it a G-ride. Us SoCal cops refer to stolen cars as G-rides, as well as the gangsters here.

                        I came home one night and was talking about getting a G-ride and my chick replied with, "LAPD gave you a car to drive home?" LOL

                          I hear mixed answers on the USBP take-home car issue... some say yes, some no....
                          The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                          the monsters and the weak." - Michael Marks

                            The answer is unequivocally no. Any position that get a G ride for BP are earned, higher up positions or competitive ones; K9, some Intel guys (far from all of them, busiest sector in the country, their BPA-Is do not get rides). The only sure bet are K9 handlers and the highest level brass. I know recently they started rolling back g rides and pretty much the only people left at station level were PAIC (station chiefs) and DPAIC.

                            What battlewagon said. Regular BPAs do not get G-rides unless you're doing that resident agent thing up North. Where you're a peace officer but also do BP duties out of your own house.

                          Geez talk about necropost...And this question was already answered. Everyday line agents on the Southwestern border do not get g-rides. High ranking brass does, k-9 does, and sometimes some specialty units do. Northern border is the same but in some remote areas they have a few resident agents who get a g-ride. A g-ride is supposed to facilitate quick travel to crime scenes, call outs etc. As a Border Patrol Agent I always went to the station first for muster, so no need for a take home g-ride. And it can all change on the whims of management.

                            If anyone is still reading this thread, the BLM and USFS 1801’s (patrol LEO’s) and 1811’s get G-rides in my District Office (Oregon)
