APPLICATIONS BEING ACCEPTED FOR SEASONAL PARK RANGERS

• Bookmarks: 54


January 11, 2022

 

Deadline to apply is Feb. 11

The Westchester County Department of Public Safety is accepting applications for seasonal park rangers to patrol County parks this summer. Applications are due by February 11 and are available online at the Department of Public Safety’s web pages: http://publicsafety.westchestergov.com.

Uniformed park rangers work under the supervision of County Police officers to maintain a safe and enjoyable atmosphere in the county’s parks. They assist park users, provide information on park rules and procedures, help in searches for lost children, perform basic first aid on occasion and make regular security checks of buildings and facilities.

First-time park rangers are paid $16 hourly. Salaries are higher for those who have worked as a ranger for the County before.

To qualify, applicants must be a high school graduate, at least 19 years of age, a U.S. citizen, and possess a valid New York State driver’s license by the time of appointment. Preference in hiring may be shown to Westchester residents. The application form may be found in the Employment section of the Department website.

Accepted candidates must attend a 121-hour peace officer training program at the Westchester County Police Academy.

Public Safety Commissioner Thomas A. Gleason said persons interested in law enforcement careers often benefit greatly from the experience gained by working as summer park rangers.

“Park Rangers receive Police Academy training and work under the supervision of Westchester County Police officers,” Gleason said. “This provides a unique view into the law enforcement field and some of the potential career opportunities that exist.”
