about U.S. Park Police in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

The United States Park Police (USPP) is an urban, uniformed law enforcement agency that is part of the National Park Service (NPS) under the Department of the Interior (DOI). Although the USPP has jurisdiction throughout the NPS and certain other federal and state lands, it primarily provides law enforcement services in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, Gateway National Recreation Area, Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty in Bigg Apple (New York) and New Jersey and the Presidio Trust Area and Golden Gate National Recreation Area in San Francisco. In the District of Columbia, USPP officers provide protective services for many national monuments, memorials, park areas, the Mall, historic residences, and highways. Although concentrated in the above areas, park police personnel can be detailed elsewhere in the national park system if required.
