"Approved the Park Ranger Regeneration Program ($1,200,000) which will allow RAP to implement the re-establishment of the Metro District Rangers Program. This is the first phase in a multi-year plan. It is expected each year a new region will become active. The Regeneration Program is expected to improve "quality of park life" issues by establishing a ranger presence throughout the City."
Now, *magic* - another new, different plan. And, apparently, Griffith Metro gets it all from what is implied here. Meanwhile, 10 Rangers barely covers the attrition in the past few years, much less provides any new service.
Also worth noting is that there is no sign of a Chief Park Ranger in that budget. I did not think a POST Agency could exist without a Chief due to things like chain-of-command, and all that related peace officer silliness. Thinking it's time to ask California POST directly about this.
