BW Job Alert: Applications Being Accepted for Seasonal Park Rangers

Do you need a summer job, live in Westchester and like the outdoors? This might be a good fit for you.

The Westchester County Department of Public Safety is accepting applications for seasonal park rangers to patrol county parks this summer. Applications are due by Feb. 22 and are available online via the Department of Public Safety.


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 $14 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
  • be at least 19 years of age
  • be a U.S. citizen
  • be a resident of Westchester County
  • possess a valid New York State driver’s license by the time of appointment.

Note: Accepted candidates must attend a 99-hour training program at the Westchester County Police Academy.

Public Safety Commissioner George Longworth said that many police officers in Westchester, including himself, had their first exposure to a law enforcement career by working as a park ranger.

“Working under the supervision of county police officers, park rangers help to ensure that Westchester’s parks and pools are safe and enjoyable for those who use them.” Public Safety Commissioner George N. Longworth said.

The Westchester County Department of Public Safety is committed to protecting the safety and security of all who live and work in our county or come here to visit.

Black Lives Don’t Matter In Mount Vernon

To Many Unsolved Homicides with No Help from Police Department or City Officials

“I’ve been quiet for awhile preaching that Black Lives Matter, but for the first time and I’m not losing the spirit of who we are, but it’s a fact to me Black Lives don’t matter in Mount Vernon, not at all,” a very emotional Kevin Shaw Sr said at the rally. “I haven’t heard from nobody, not one time, nobody, no police officer, nobody never called me, since my son was murdered up here in Mount Vernon. I’ve been up here 15-20 times… I ain’t get one call, never since June 24, 2015 [18 months later]. Every time I come to Mount Vernon they say they are going to call… I can’t even get my son’s possessions from that night.” WATCH VIDEO
