there are absolutely federal police. i know because they gave me a ticket for trespassing while i was taking a shortcut through a federal cemetery. i had to make an appearance in federal criminal court and got a $70 fine. they have patrol cars and uniforms that say federal police. they can be found on federal grounds like a VA complex or Federal building. they absolutely were not FBI or secret service. they were Federal Police.
