Many veterans find the National Park Service law enforcement to be a good transition from a military career.

Depending on the details of your service, you may be eligible for hire through one of the veteran's hiring flexibilities.

Some veterans can qualify directly for NPS law enforcement ranger positions, while others may need additional training through a seasonal training academy or the NPS Law Enforcement Training Center.
