SACRAMENTOCongratulations to some of our newest members who have spent eight long months training to become California State Parks rangers and peace officer-lifeguards!  The cadets graduated from their program and received their badges on June 8, 2017.

“These men and women are officially rangers and peace officer-lifeguards, sworn peace officers who will now begin 13 weeks of field training,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.   “We are proud of the hard work they have put in and proud of their profession and the public safety work that they will perform.  It’s a very proud moment when you receive your badge.”

California State Parks employs more than 600 peace officers to ensure public safety and the  protection of park resources. Rangers and peace officer-lifeguards provide not only law enforcement and emergency medical response, they also provide public education, interpretation and program management.

Graduates of this class will be stationed at 15 park units throughout the state. Their training included lessons in making physical arrests, conducting investigations, performing search and rescue activities, defensive tactics and firearms use. Cadets were also trained in visitor assistance, public education and interpretation, and park resource protection and management.
