    Classic.

    All kidding aside, some of these non-mainstream law enforcement assignments can be the most rewarding. I've always gravitated to positions of this ilk. The further out the better. Park Ranger work would be okay. But, working in the forest is more my style.

    I spent almost ten years as a forest cop in very remote areas. Many of my contemporaries tended to view me as an odd bird, but, those jobs are one of the best kept secrets in LE. --K.

      I was PROUD to have a SHOVEL in the bed of my truck and a MOSSBERG 500 in the CAB.

      Taking pride in the enviroment that you work in, putting it into action day after day, heat and rain, confused tourist and drunk drivers alike, is called CRIME PREVENTION. How many more crimes happen in the slums of your community? The same thing applies to our parks.

      Today I am proud to be a security professional, I was proud to be a LE Officer, but I was the PROUDEST to be "just" a PARK RANGER.

          Park Rangers

          Seattle area? The City of Seattle just created Park Ranger gigs for the core downtown parks. They're hiring 6 FTE positions sans the sweeping up type duties. --K.

(The problem in our work is that you can never prove what you have prevented).
            Very valid point. Nothing is worse than people adding on to your workload every couple of months or year that isn't in the description.
