The first park ranger in the world was appointed in California in 1866. Galen Clark was chosen as "Guardian of Yosemite," at what was then Yosemite State Park, and the concept of rangers to protect and administer America's great nature parks was born. The tradition continued in 1872 with the establishment of the first national park at Yellowstone. From the earliest days, park rangers have been romanticized; they are explorers, outdoorsmen, tree lovers, animal protectors, police officers, nature guides, and park administrators. The park ranger has become an American icon, whose revered image has maintained itself to this very day.

The Department of Parks and Recreation requested that the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training conduct a survey and submit a report on findings and recommendations concerning the law enforcement responsibilities and needs of the State Park System. Five or six field trips were made to the six district headquarter offices and many park units of the park system. Visitations to 35 units were made before the report was finally completed. Interviews were had with district superintendents and park unit staff. Inspections were made of park facilities and equipment. The accumulated data and information were analyzed and assessed in relation to the crime problem, and to the law enforcement capability in the park system.
