The focus of this joint oversight hearing is a June 27, 2013 report released by the Office of the Inspector General claiming the U.S. Park Police could not account for government-issued firearms. The report highlights troubling problems with how the Park Police tracks and secures its firearms inventory, the current approaches taken by senior Park Police management to oversee firearms acquisition and inventory controls, and how Park Police firearms custodians and other personnel have not been properly trained. The joint oversight hearing will also examine the ten recommendations identified by the Inspector General's Office for U.S. Park Police to improve its management of its firearms inventory.
