    A lot of fixed post? or more mobile?
    Transfer program for Capitol Officers, D.C. Metro and Secret Service U.D. or do you have to go through whole training and restart salery?
    Internally, is the Dept. good to work for or alot of issues?

      Some of the guys I work with came from there. They say its not bad at all, you will be doing fixed post but they also have patrol, horseback detail, undercover, K-9 and so on. I believe they go to FLETC then of course they have their own training. D.C. Metro will make you go through their academy and besides having FLETC I believe you will still have to go through the entire process with all other government agencies. I have never heard of them letting you transfer.

            There are a lot of fixed posts, but they do a lot more police work than most, if not all, other federal uniformed agencies. But their priority is monument protection, they'll pull guys assigned to patrol off the road if the monuments aren't well enough protected. That's according to OIG. The up side, seeing as it's a fed agency, it naturally draws it's share of "dead wood", who prefer 'working' a post.

            I haven't been given a definitive answer on pay matching, but everyone I talk to says they start at the same base pay (52k or something like that) regardless of where you're coming from, regardless if you're already federal. I'm sure they'll take UPTP, but not accept any state academies.

            As far as internal issues, if you're thinking of applying, I strongly suggest you go to http://www.doioig.gov/ and read the OIG assessment of the Park Police, it's right on the front page. That will let you know what you're getting into & give you info that recruiters and others who want to pimp PPD may not tell you. That's not to say it will convince you not to apply. PPD is still a good gig and most of the issues in there aren't too important for the regular patrol officer, IMO. But some issues may be important to you, and it will help you make an informed decision.

              I got rejected for living too far away, but USSS & USCP seem interested as did USPP a while back. I live about 70 miles north in MD. Sounds like a fair/good gig, esp. to start.

                They have a residency requirement?
