    Anyone have any info on the National Zoo Police in DC?

  • #2
    Small agency. Fall under the Smithsonian Institute. Have a decent sized patrol area but I havent seen them to pro active. About 6 years back there was a shooting there and DC police ended up taking the lead on it.
    I don't answer recruitment messages....

        Several zoo policing agencies. Mainly off shoots of park districts and the such.

          Yeah, it's call "Metropolitan Police District of Columbia"

              Yeah, that would make sense. It might take me a little longer to find out in person. Luckily, I don't live in the city I live in NOVA, its a different world out there

                It seems silly to me that all of these federal departments and agencies have their own uniformed divisions. I'll have to admit that the Zoo Police is a new one to me, but you've got the Secret Service Uniformed Division, FBI Police, Congressional Police, National Park Police, etc. It would seem more efficient and better managed if there was one federal government police agency that provided uniformed officers to the various governmental bodies around the country, perhaps under the General Services Agency (who, no doubt, has their own patrol department as well). At least to an outsider like me, many of them seemed charged with the same responsibility -- patrolling government institutions. I suppose those who work for said agencies can give all sorts of reasons why they should be independent, but it seems a waste to me.
                Caution and worry never accomplished anything.

                  Because that would make far too much sense, Kirch. This is the federal government we're talking about here.

                    Exactly. We're not even all on the same pay scale / retirement.

                      He is calling your neck of the woods, a zoo.
                      Those MPDC men/women sure do earn their pay!! And on the flip side, any citizen that vote for that disaster Marion Barry, not only for mayor, but for a Ward City Council seat deserves to live in a Zoo...

                        Kirch, I laughed my head off when you said this, because until very recently GSA did have an LE Division, it was called Federal Protective Service. FPS was recently transferred to DHS/ICE, but they still have the same mission.

                        It would make sense to just have FPS run all those little "Police" agencies, but then again, this is the Fed.....

                            Yeah, and now he doesn't want them prosecuted. No wonder the city was a cesspool while he was mayor. This is a quote from a WP article:


                            "I have no animosities," Barry declared. "I don't even want you prosecuted, really. I love you. Give yourself up. Call the police. . . . I will do all I can to advocate non-prosecution."

                            I guess crack does have residual effects
