U.S. Park Police job application form authorization expires

See also

Technically, the authority to take applications for U.S. Park Police (USPP) jobs expires at the end of January. But since the National Park Service (NPS) still hasn't officially gotten approval from the Office of Management & Budget to continue using it or an updated version, USPP can and will continue to use the old form.

NPS is announcing in the Federal Register of Monday, Jan. 27 that it is opening another comment period on a revised form. For details, see NPS proposed a revised form for public comment last August. For details, see the story linked to below.

The new public comment period lasts until Feb. 26.

Applicants for officer positions with the force must complete USPP Form 1 (USPP Personal History Statement). USPP gets about 2,500 applications a year.

NPS proposed no changes to the form but seeks suggestions once again. Nobody wrote after the call last August. It takes about eight hours to fill out the application, so now's the last chance to suggest ways to streamline it, clarify it or drop unnecessary questions.
