    Does anybody know if you can buy a exam book just for the park police or a book that would cover the same material for fed police jobs(ie. DC police). I've got a BPA exam book but I don't think the material overlaps. Also I read on one of the park service websites that park police have to go to DC after they get out of training. Is this true or was the website wrong. And last but not least, does anybody know about how many they are hiring? On opm it just says multiple.

    They do protection and patrol duties. I see them on the parkway alot around here. I'd say a little of everything except I do not believe they do house calls or like

    Do you have to start in DC? Or could you choose NY or SF instead?

    Is there a COLA for living in SF or NY?

    Does anybody know what kind of lockups an average officer will make? What laws enforced?

    They had a lateral academy a few years ago for Mixed basic police certified folks. They are one of only 2 agencies where they do not have to call the FBI for certain felonies on their property due to their having the same authority as the MPDC. Great agency (they used to have a hqs where I used to work).

    I think you are correct about this....DC has their own academy in DC

    Not sure of the entire listing but they have any and everything as far as specialties go..I know they do run helicopter and boat patrols which alot of places don't. From what I have heard from friends in LE in this area(MD.),this is a great place to work.

    I spent 4 months at FLETC, and that was plenty long enough.

    ...If selected for this position, you must complete specialized law enforcement
    training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Brunswick,
    Georgia (for 24-week duration) beginning on or about April 30, 2006....

    I'm pretty sure they have heir own program at FLETC that is something like 17-24 weeks long. The basic Police program is only 10 weeks. A great thing about USPP, their training exceeds but also meets NPS standards so you can transfer and become a park ranger or NPS LE Specialist. After you get some time in the investigation division conducts criminal investigations in national parks nationwide.
