On LEAs authorizing warning shots:

At least two LEAs allow for warning shots under specific circumstances: the USSS and CBP. The DOS and DOE possibly do, as well, again under specific circumstances, but have not been able to confirm it. (To head off the questions, no, I won't discuss when and why they are authorized to do so.)
Meriam Webster's: Main Entry: ci·vil·ian Pronunciation: \sə-ˈvil-yən also -ˈvi-yən\, Function: noun, Date: 14th century, 1: a specialist in Roman or modern civil law, 2 a: one not on active duty in the armed services or not on a police or firefighting force b: outsider 1, — civilian adjective
