Its an Aircraft frequency, likely used by commercial planes. Not federal law enforcement. Who calls it a victor channel?

Neither FBI or Customs. Its a normal VHF (Victor) frequency for Air Traffic Control. Here are a few users of the frequency: Military Comms Searchable Frequency Database

You could have heard the word "Victor" in referring to 132.275 has a VHF (Victor) frequency as opposed to a UHF (Uniform) frequency. You may also have heard the word "Victor" (really Vector) as an aircraft getting vectors around other traffic or weather.

The word "Ground" could have been used when ATC was telling an aircraft to contact "ground" control, ground control are the guys to tell aircraft where to taxi to while on the ground.

One has to wonder if you are hearing aircraft working the Washington Center remote outlet at Martinsburg,
WV. You do not say where you are, but looking at other posts, it looks like possibly Trenton, NJ area and you would hear some aircraft doing that there. Also, you did not say if you actually heard the ground stations and a callsign for an aircraft would certainly be helpful.

FBI and/or DHS
136.275 is a Department of Justice VHF aero assignment so any of the DoJ agencies can use it. I have seen the Marshal Service and DEA use it. I would imagine that the FBI uses it as well.
