Inspector General claims the Park Police are plagued by low morale

According to a report from the Interior Department’s inspector general, the U.S. Park Police may not be properly protecting the Nation’s monuments. Even the Fraternal order of Police have appealed for management changes and describe the agency as a “mess”.

A Union survey found that only 2.2% of respondents had confidence in the Chief, Dwight E. Pettiford. When Chief Pettiford was asked about the failure of his officers to properly protect the monuments he replied: “They’re still standing”.

Apparently, his comment referred to the monuments, not the photograph of a supposedly sleeping officer on post.
