The Chair of the Sacramento Board of Supervisors Roberta MacGlashan will swear in Stan Lumsden as the Interim Ranger Manager today. Lumsden will officially assume his duties as the lead ranger for Sacramento County Regional Parks and will oversee all law enforcement and safety activities throughout the park system.

The Rangers are full peace officers, have the same level of authority as a County Sheriff deputy or a City Police Officer and have completed extensive training at the Sheriff’s Academy. They enforce the laws applicable to Regional Parks, specific County ordinances and California Vehicle, Penal and Health & Safety Codes within all County Regional Parks.

Rangers enforce infractions, misdemeanors and felonies that occur within the Park system. They also protect the wildlife and environment and patrol all of the parks to deter vandalism and promote safety.

“We are pleased to bring Stan on board as we begin our search for a permanent Chief Officer,” stated Supervisor MacGlashan. “His prior experience in law enforcement and his reputation as an outstanding officer will help us keep the park system safe.”

Lumsden recently retired from the Roseville Police Department as a captain, serving 29 years on the force. During his career, he served as a member of SWAT, K-9 duty, narcotics and vice, youth services, and retired as the patrol division commander. He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy and holds a Masters Degree from Saint Mary’s College of California.
