@UNMARKED:that would mean local VA cops, yo...........
look under law enforcement officer
those feds can't arrest you for speeding and they aint allowed to go solo on HOV - yeah they could maybe pull you over and detain you, but I dont think theyd want to suffer the wrath of DC for doing some bullshit like that over someone just doing 10 over the limit.
But no, according to the Code of Virginian, they arent the cops, they aren't offical law-enforcement officers unless they are cops in jurisdiction.
Now an out-of jurisdiction cop in a real cop car doing on real cop business (like some MoCo cop going to Arlington Courthouse, something like that), that would be something else, prolly.
But some DEA agent on his way into work, even if he has a Govt car isnt allowed to violate HOV like that.
