The Clark County Park District Ranger Patrol Division provides the protection and preservation of life and property within all CCPD managed parks. The Rangers patrol all areas of the parks by Ranger Cruiser, foot patrol, bike patrol, and all terrain vehicles. This makes the Rangers available to assist all park visitors. All Rangers are State of Ohio certified peace officers, and are trained for emergency response and investigation. Rangers enforce local and state laws as well the rules and regulations of the Clark County Park District. When you meet a CCPD Ranger, you are meeting a highly trained, committed, professional officer that works in and around the parks to keep you safe when you visit.



Clark County Parks are known for their clean and safe atmosphere.  The Rangers and command staff of the Clark County Park District (CCPD) Ranger Patrol Division have a commitment to provide you, your family and all visitors with a safe and clean park environment. Our parks are a place where you can relax and enjoy nature and other park activities. This is our pledge to you as CCPD Rangers.
