Park Officers are state-certified peace officers who enforce federal and state laws as well as the park district’s rules and regulations. Park Officers are the primary law enforcement in our park facilities, and patrol by car, bicycle and foot. Our officers are not only law enforcement officers but are involved in park programs & events, community events, touch-a-truck programs and much more. While on patrol, they also assist visitors who have questions or other needs while in the parks.
