Cameron County Park Rangers

ABOUT US

Cameron County’s parks are open year-round to the public. Park Rangers patrol the parks to ensure visitors’ safety. Specifically, they enforce the county park system’s rules and regulations by educating and issuing verbal or written warnings or summons citations to violators. Rangers also patrol the parks using fully-equipped patrol vehicles, and also patrol the parks and trails on foot and on bike.  Minor violations are often handled by a verbal or written warning; however stronger enforcement actions are sometimes required.

Rangers are trained in arrest techniques, firearms, search and seizure, defensive tactics and community policing.
