Reinstate Chief Chambers, Orders Merit Board

Reinstate Chief Chambers, Orders Merit Board

U.S. Park Police Chief Teresa Chambers was suspended from her position by the Bush administration in 2003 and fired in 2004. Her crime: expressing concern about staff shortages which endangered visitors and NPS employees.

It was the truth. The Merit Systems Protection Board has ordered the Park Police to reinstate Chief Chambers by month’s end. The Board also ordered NPS to reimburse her for legal fees and restore her pay retroactive to July 2004.

Teresa Chambers is an admired and persistent law enforcement professional. She has doggedly pursued the cause of justice as Park Police Chief and as Chief of Police in Durham, North Carolina and Riverdale Park, Maryland. It’s only right that Chief Chambers finally got some justice herself.


“Fired Park Police chief Teresa C. Chambers ordered reinstated,” Ed O’Keefe, Washington Post.
