Default Re: X-Files level characters

GURPS Mysteries has a Police Detective template that's 60 points. With a little extra investment in more Legal Enforcement Powers, Security Clearance and maybe Rank, it produces a really nice FBI investigator. The book recommends dropping IQ by one point for an ordinary NPC homicide detective, so the template is right on the money skill-level-wise for the PCs' colleagues as-is (primary skills at 13). With all that, a 150-point character still has around 70 points left for being a kickass former Army Ranger or martial arts champion or something, or one of the world's foremost experts on UFOs and psychic phenomena.
