OROVILLE – On October 20, 2016, representatives from the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) and its affiliate Resources Protection Peace Officers Association (RPPOA), visited 33 California State Park Ranger and Peace Officer-Lifeguard cadets at the State Parks Law Enforcement Academy at Butte College in Oroville.
In attendance on behalf of RPPOA and CSLEA were RPPOA President and State Park Ranger Matt Yarbrough, CSLEA Chief Counsel and General Manager Kasey Clark, and Member Services Representative George Pina.
"We met with a diverse group of 33 Ranger and Peace Officer-Lifeguard cadets from all over the state, many with prior state service. We had a great talk about the wonderful job they're entering into, where we are going as Rangers and Peace Officer-Lifeguards and how the union benefits their life,” said Yarbrough. “We answered lots of questions and I did my best to convey how happy everyone in the field is for them to be starting on their new journey. We can't wait to work with them in the field and look forward to all of them successfully graduating from the academy. It was great to see how dedicated and enthusiastic this group of cadets is."
