  • working at parks

    I love doing security work and I would love to work outdoors like at a natural park. I am from upstate ny. Does anyone know about jobs that wod fit that kind of requirement. Sort of like a park ranger but without the police training. I am past the age to go to a police acedemy. I am not looking so much for a job opening, but more to find out if anything like this exists.

    Im so glad youre in NY. This may or may not help you. NYS park police have seasonal positions memorial day to labor day. You go to Resnellar (or something) for training. You get uniform and all that provided. They pay pretty well too. Iff you can get on, you get seniority over the following year to come back instead of a new hire. Ill get a link in case youre interested.

    I applied A Few Years Back. They Did Not Have Any Open Spots For The PSR But Offered Me a Dispatch Position. I dDeclined. THe Reason I Wanted To apply There was To Be Outside. And Dispatch Work doesnt really Interest Me

            The seasonal park service position sounds great except i prefer an income all year round.

              NY S park police had their test last year so thatll be a while for a new one. If you want to move out of state, fed job with NPS might be good. Other than that not too many options

                NY has PEP and other park Ranger programs. As above, you need to go out and test.

                  I got some more Park video I'll post as soon as I figure out how to blur the faces of the harassed innocent patrons who were asking not to be filmed.

                  PS-My video answered most of his questions:

                  One of the guys is also over Academy age, this is doing quasi-police type work in a park.

                  "Sort of like a park ranger but without the police training." YEAH, it exists.

                  In CA to become a Park Ranger you need a 40hr "Post 832" class called "powers to arrest". Its the first class in 6 month real Academy. Its paid for by employer or you can self sponser for $160 which IMO is a bargain for 40hr police level class by same guys who train real cops, and they were real good about answering odd ball questions.

                  I'm sure NY has something similar.

                  The two clowns in the video are working for a regular private company as regular security, just at a State Park under a State contract and under supervision (rollseyes) of a MIA/AWOL Park Ranger. Typical security duties, patrol around, open and lock gates,

                    I would imagine that enforcing rules in a public park without law enforcement authority would be extremely frustrating. At least with private property you have the general "agent of the owner" authority which is basically "This is private property. Follow the rules or GTFO" (said nicely, of course ). If you don't have that, and don't have law enforcement authority, what incentive is there for people to listen to what you say?
