Abstract: It is shown that the only Hausdorff topologies on $ {{\mathbf{Z}}_p}$, the $ p$-adic integers, which make it into a locally compact Abelian group are the $ p$-adic and discrete topologies. The key ingredient in the proof is a structure theorem for certain LCA groups which may be of independent interest.
