After 9/11, the Federal Bureau of Investigation instated the State and Local Law Enforcement Executives and Elected Officials Security Clearance Initiative. This initiative allows state law enforcement members and some public officials to gain access to classified information that may affect their state or municipality. To receive this clearance, however, the applicant must go through a rigorous vetting process.
If you are looking to receive a security clearance under the State and Local Law Enforcement Executives and Elected Officials Security Clearance Initiative, then it may be time to seek legal counsel. At Claery & Hammond, LLP, our national security clearance attorneys have collectively been helping clients navigate this process for more 50 years.

The FBI Clearance Process
State and Local Law Enforcement Executives and Elected Officials Security Clearance Initiative applicants must apply at their local FBI office. Applicants need to fill out a Standard Form 86 (SF-86) and a Questionnaire for National Security Positions. Perhaps the most rigorous part of this application process is the background investigation, which is conducted by the FBI itself.
The FBI will review:
- Your citizenship
- Your birth date
- Your family
- Your finances
- Your mental health
- Your employment history
- Your military service (if any)
- Your time spent in other countries
This investigation process may include interviews with your family, friends, and colleagues. If you are just approaching this application process or have received a denial from the FBI, then our firm is ready to hear from you. We are well-versed in preparing candidates for this process and ensuring that their applications are both thorough and compelling.
