From where does the authority of the railroad policeman come? I knew a guy who was with NS and it seemed he had multi-state jurisdiction along the railroad property. I was under the impression that only federal cops had that kind of pull, as police in our country are generally state post certified peace officers, including state, county and local cops.

In my opinion going to a law enforcement school is nothing more than a waste time of money, unless of course you are looking to possibly becoming a security guard. What they teach you in a police academy is more than you can ever learn some bogus law enforcement school.
