The ProRanger Philadelphia program is an academic, technical skills training, and internship program that is cooperatively administered by the National Park Service and Temple University. The program was established to recruit, train and employ law enforcement park rangers for the National Park Service.
Students take coursework during the academic year at Temple University and participate in internships at National Park Service sites during the summer. Follow their experiences here.

Week 5 at CHRI
Superintendent Joel Tutein getting his hands dirty #COOL.
I have gone past half of my internship here in Christiansted
NHS. I have learned a whole lot about "Rangering" and now I’m giving back to the community and the Park, what I have learned so far. This week, the Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) began
working at the Christiansted National Historic Site. I was introduced to them
as part of the L.E. staff here at CHRI and I got the chance to brief them on
how I arrived at St Croix and also concerning the ProRanger Program for those of them who
might be interested in law enforcement in the future.
Contractors changing the ropes for the flag.
This week wasn’t as busy as previous weeks. I patrolled the
three sites, I had non-law enforcement contacts, I practiced report writing, I
helped with traffic, I changed the flags at the Fort, and I basically prepared
for the upcoming naturalization ceremony that was going to take place on park
Next week sounds busy. We have the ceremony itself, court hearings,
and a wedding at Christiansted NHS amongst other things.
Until my next post…
