    Pros

    The Ranger Department is quickly growing and expanding. Good leadership that has fixed a lot of previous personnel and policy/procedure problems. More on track now with what a police department should be instead of what it was. Good place to start & end a career. Lots of positive public contact.

    Cons

    Overall low pay since park system is levy funded, but not bad for a part-time police job. Understaffed to provide coverage to all the parks every day. Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Need more people and some full time officers.

    Pros

    Being outdoors, freedom to roam the county, public, coworkers, doing nothing for 8 hours a day

    Cons

    Been through 5 chiefs in 7 years, seriously lacking REAL management, supervisors are clueless and uncaring, management are never around, revolving door policy, will remind you that you can be replaced in a day

    Advice to Management

    Learn the names of the non-management employees (Really? It is embarrassing not to even recognizing the people you have working for you). Listen to the employees (You will have a better chance of avoiding mutinies and 5 people quitting in the same day). Maybe some supervisor classes would help curb your inabilities to lead effectively.
