Westchester County: Applications Being Accepted for Seasonal Park Rangers

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 17.

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 18 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 Seasonal Park Ranger application is available online at

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

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

“Seasonal Park Rangers receive Police Academy training and work under the supervision of Westchester County Police officers,” Raynor said.  “For persons considering a career in law enforcement, the position provides a unique view into the field and some of the potential career opportunities that exist.”
