What you saw on the ID was "BUREAU OF INVESTIGATIONS".
It's the state bureau though, not federal.  It says that on the ID too,
but in teeny blurry print at the bottom.  State of Washington.
They say as much about the ID owner in the show at least once too, and
he acts in this capacity at Leo's hearing.  Hank did get it off the DA 
at the diner.

Maybe Hank is compulsive thief.  He took someone's lighter at the diner too.
