NIAGARA FALLS – The Downtown Ranger Program is accepting applications and plans to hire 12 to 15 people who will act as ambassadors for tourists, providing both information and safety for those who visit downtown Niagara Falls throughout the summer.

Applicants must be high school graduates and must be able to pass a background check. The part-time summer position is ideal for college students, but it is open to all ages. Applicants must have a valid New York State driver’s license and live in the City of Niagara Falls. Pay is $14 an hour and may involve evening and weekend work.

The program is run under auspices of the City of Niagara Falls Police Department. Former Niagara Falls Police Capt. Frank Tedesco will serve as the supervisor for the summer program. No background or aspirations to law enforcement careers are necessary, according to Niagara Falls Police Superintendent E. Bryan DalPorto.

Applications will be accepted through next Friday, and rangers will start in the beginning of July.
