This is the August 2, 2013 hearing on "Missing Weapons at the National Park Service: Mismanagement and Lack of Accountability," held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on National Security of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation of the Committee on Natural Resources. From the opening statement of Jason Chaffetz: "Today's proceedings result from a need to further address questions and concerns raised in a June 27th report from this year issued by the U.S. Department of Interior's Office of Inspector General (OIG) entitled, 'Review of U.S. Park Police Weapons Accountability Program.' In the report, the OIG made some very serious charges, including finding insufficient: 'accountability, accuracy, and oversight' of the U.S. Park Police's firearms program. During the course of the OIG's investigation, the OIG found: 'credible evidence of conditions that would allow for theft and misuse of firearms and the ability to conceal the fact if weapons were missing.' Moreover, despite requirements to maintain an accurate firearms inventory, the OIG found that U.S. Park Police firearms inventory records were inaccurate and failed to account for hundreds of firearms." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Robert Knox and Jonathan B. Jarvis.
