Lincoln Memorial Visitation- Ten Minutes in 15 Seconds

Wed. 6/7/2017 1:20 pm-  The United States Park Police is responsible for protecting visitors to our Nation’s Capital. Visitation has increased 41% since 1990. However, the force has been recklessly understaffed by the National Park Service for decades. The Park Police is over 250 officers short of safe staffing levels established in 1999. We need your assistance to bring attention to this issue and your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
