Officers at work on the main campus

National Institutes of Health Police are responsible for security and law-enforcement functions at NIH facilities, including the National Institutes of Health main campus in Bethesda, Maryland and at the NIH Rocky Mountain Laboratory in Montana. [1]

According to Fox News, the General Accounting Office reported, in January 2012, that officers in the National Institutes of Health Police had lower salaries than comparable Police Departments.[2] A new officer in the United States Capitol Police earned $61,000 a year, while a new officer in the National Institutes of Health Police started at just $39,000.
