The U.S. Park Police is a distinct law enforcement division of the National Park Service, with jurisdiction in all NPS sites, but primarily utilized in large metropolitan areas as law enforcement services in rural, wilderness, and even some urban units are provided by National Park Rangers.
Other units are designated national monuments, historical parks, national memorials, historic trails, outdoor recreation areas, wild and scenic rivers, lakeshores, seashores, and battlefields.
For example, Ellis Island National Monument is not an NPS unit; it is a dependent area of Statue of Liberty National Monument which is one of the 390 units.
