Wikipedia is a great go-to for looking up stuff like this.


Jurisdictional issues

The use of the term "Special Agent" for US Federal Law Enforcement Officers, as opposed to a federal police officer, derives from the fact that all such individuals have limited jurisdiction. They may only enforce certain sections of the US Code, or be limited to a certain geographic area, or both. There is no such thing as a "General Agent" that is empowered to enforce all laws, everywhere in the United States. This is in contrast to individual states, which can and most often do have General Agents, though they are not usually referred to as such. A state police or highway patrol organization typically has the authority to enforce all state laws everywhere within the geographic confines of that state.

The "special" agent in the FBI means they ride the short bus to work.

Special Agent= 1 of 4000 or however many. Kinda silly, actually.
Special Agent in Charge (SAC)= Supervisor of some sort.
