Park rangers honored for service to state

Wyoming’s state park rangers recently received the 2014 Platinum Award of Excellence for their service to the state.

The award is presented by the Park Law Enforcement Association.

In choosing to honor Wyoming's park rangers, the association cited efforts to boost state rangers' professionalism and training, detecting and stopping crime like DWUIs and domestic violence, consistently choosing between education versus enforcement and serving as a trustworthy partner for other law enforcement agencies.

"Your efforts serve as a beacon to other park enforcement agencies nationwide and stresses the need to have a collaborative law enforcement presence in the parks with an understanding of the special needs and considerations in patrolling park patrons required to create a safe, welcoming and enjoyable park experience," wrote Hugo McPhee, the past president of the Park Law Enforcement Association and the chair of its awards committee, in a Feb. 20 letter.

Wyoming’s state park rangers have a track record of implementing innovative management strategies that increase effectiveness or efficiencies in the delivery of park safety or security protocols, said a release from the parks and cultural resources department.

“I greatly appreciate our staff, which uphold a high standard of service to the citizens of Wyoming and our visitors, and would like to thank (the Park Law Enforcement Association) for this national recognition,” said Domenic Bravo, Wyoming’s state park administrator.
