      I am not certain the president would have any special authority over state and local LE agencies...but reason I am not certain is I have not read over The Patriot Act, etc. I am also not completely familiar with the powers of FEMA should the president declare a state of emergency. I have heard all kinds of stuff but speculate most of it to be fiction.

      I do remember that my department beefed up patrol coverage after 9/11 creating A LOT of mandatory overtime for all officers. They worked something like 60-70 hours a week for about 3 weeks. Then they gradually backed off to what they normally did.

            If we are talking in the utmost severe situation, the President has the authority to declare Marshal Law. (hypothetically, talking nation wide) If that becomes the case then the Army becomes the Head Law Enforcement entity with all others reporting to them. They would not, "take control", of say local PD's but the chain of command would stop at the General. (of course Exec branch would be on top). It would be a huge cluster trying to organize that many different agencies so under Marshal law the military will run the show. If they say curfew is at 8PM and the local PD say 10PM..... Army wins!.

            FEMA is a HUGE Government agency that believe it or not is made up largely of the ARMY (Nat. Guard / Reserve, etc)(not saying they are Army, just clarifying) Simply because in the event of an emergency they already have tons of equipment to respond quickly. That's why you almost always see them at natural diasters so quickly.

            If it ever got that bad .... heaven help us!

              By no means am I a spelling Nazi, but I have to point out this one.

              It's "martial" law.

                    "Marshal Law" is the type enforced by Matt Dillon or Sam Gerard.

                        In United States law, martial law is limited by several court decisions handed down during the American Civil War and World War II. In Ex Parte Milligan 71 US 2 1866, the Supreme Court of the United States held that martial law could not be instituted within the United States when its civilian courts are in operation. However, declaration of martial law is also sometimes used by dictatorships, especially military dictatorships, to enforce their rule.

                        There are conflicting opinions of whether or not the Executive Branch or Legislative Branch of our government has the sole authority to declare Martial law.
