New to all this. What law says a law enforcement officer can fly a law Enforcement aircraft under a private pilots license and does not require a commercial license?

If you are operating an LE aircraft you typically would be under Public Use so you can fly on a Pvt Pilot, this is not APSA's recommended practice however.

I will add to Richard's comment that as a unit manager one of my jobs is to manage or limit liability to my agency. A private pilot flying the missions we do would be a big red flag for me. I think probably more common in the industry is to err on the other side of what's technically legal and require a commercial, instrument, and several hundred hours.

Ref 14 CFR (FAR) Part 61 and Part 91. Reading through these might help. Also look up "8900.1 volume 3, chapter 14 Public Aircraft" on the FAA webpage. It has good information especially if you want to fly only as a public use aircraft. If you are flying surplus aircraft such as the OH-58's this might be beneficial.
