    Are you talking about US Postal Police or Inspector? USPS maintains a small uniformed Police Department at some of the major facilities. They rarely hire and have laid off in the past. They go through the basic LE course at Glynco. There were rumors going around that they were going to phase out the uniformed division and let FPS take it over, but those rumors are probably exactly that....rumors. I only know of one person that works for them, I'll see if I can find an email.

    The Postal Police Force now receives their training at CDD which is the training academy for the Postal Inspection Service.

    The Postal Service has been closing down numerous Postal Police Station across the U.S. and are contracting with private securities. I know there is a lot of rumors about the future of the force.

    Most of the PPO's that I have met were all internal hires from the Postal Service. I have no idea if they hire outside of USPS.

    I included a link to an article on their current problems:

    Eunice: A .22? Oh you've gotta be kidding me. That's like bringing a knife to a gunfight.
    Detective Greenly: Yeah, or bringing a really small gun... to a gunfight.

    We have the Postal Police here. They escort the money truck that goes around and collects the $ from the branches. They also do the door security at the employee entrance at tehmain post office here which is open 24 hours.

    They als have NO power off-duty and even on duty are limited. We had 2 postal works go at it...fist to fist. Injuries. They are both collars for assault here in NY. We get there and go in the back where the fight was, on postal property, in the processing area. Postal Police show up about 5 minutes after we do. We see them and go to leave and they strat yelling "Where are you going?" We tell them...it involved postal employees on postal grounds and you are a postal police officer so do what youw ant. That is when he explained they can not take arrests, he has 4 years on and never made an arrest and is basically a security guard.

    My boss comes, his boss comes and the Inspectors show up. And yes, he is right. They (Postal Police) are not allowed to arrest here in NYC.. The Inpectors did not want the colar, but were willing to take it and they did such. Seems the Postal Police have the same authority as the Veterans Hospital Police here. They may cuff somebody, but the do not process or take the arrest....they pass it off like the Rite-Aid Security gurd who caught a shoplifter.
    -In God we trust. All others, put your hands on the car and don't move.
