State Park Peace Officer Cadet Recruitment

Transformation Logo

Welcome to Transformation Tuesday! Today, we would like to share the ongoing efforts for recruiting the next class of State Park Peace Officer (SPPO) Cadets (Ranger/Lifeguard). The cadet classification is the entry and training level for men and women interested in a law enforcement career with California State Parks. The application process is currently open until June 3, 2016.

Yesterday, Auburn State Recreation Area Supervising Ranger Scott Liske and Folsom State Recreation Area SPPO Lifeguard Joshua Neff participated in a live question-and-answer broadcast via Periscope. The broadcast, shot atop No Hands Bridge at Auburn State Recreation Area, with the American River in the background, allowed viewers to ask questions directly to Neff and Liske about the application process and requirements, academy and their careers as State Park Peace Officers.
