  • US Park Police

    Anyone taking the test this week??? Have not heard much on this site...Any Park Officers hear anything on hiring numbers? i am scheduled to take the test on 05/05 but have not scheduled a flight or hotel. I have not decided if this is going to be worth the effort due to all the negative publicity surrounding the level of attrition and hiring at Park.

    I took the test for GGNRA a couple of years ago.... all new hires were going to DC for three years. Check with the recruiters to see if they still do this.

      Just curious as to what all you have heard that may be negative? I am also signed up to take the test and just received my test date for next week. I live about 7+ hours from D.C. and after these next two weeks will have had to make the commute 6 times in 2.5 weeks. For me it is starting to get overwhelmingly expensive (just started grad school and fresh out of undergrad with a federal internship under my belt) for my financial status. I want to keep as many options open as I can, even though it's a struggle it will be all worth it in the end. Hopefully!

            The info about the agency is not negative. Do some research...There are stories out there about very low manpower levels, poor equipment/vehicles, and an overall concern for the state of the Park Police. Park is a great agency to work for but the agency itself is having issues. Oh yeah i forgot to mention that i read in another post that Park recently hired a class only to tell the hirees that they no longer had a job within a week of the academy starting..I was hoping there were some Park Officers on here who could shed some light on the issues..Use GOOGLE and and read for yourself..

                Congratulations, on to the waiting game. I took the test last month as well but have not heard anything yet. Good Luck at the PEB.

                          Question to all -- a friend of mine was set up to test with USPP a couple of weeks ago but fell ill and was unable to do so, would he be able to reschedule a test even though I would assume announcement is closed? I told him no, however I am seeking a knowledgeable source on this one. Thanks!

                            Test

                            You are correct. The announcement closed and he is going to have to wait until the next opening. The Park Officers at my testing were pretty clear on this being the only shot to take the test this time around.
