About United States Park Police (USPP)

Proudly Serving Since 1791


The United States Park Police was created by President George Washington in 1791. The Force functions as a unit of the National Park Service with jurisdiction in all Federal parks. U.S. Park Police officers are located in the Washington, DC, New York City, and San Francisco metropolitan areas, and investigate and detain persons suspected of committing offenses against the United States. Officers also carry out services for many notable events conducted in the national parks.  On February 25, 2021, Pamela A. Smith was named the new Chief of the United States Park Police. 

Due to concerns related to the transmission of COVID-19, the United States Park Police Records Management Offices will be closed until further notice. Records requests will not be available in-person until our office reopens. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
