      Nope! Those duties require one to be sworn officers in CA; and, no one is hiring. Well, the CHP is hiring but does not have any of those types of positions.
      Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

            A CSO can be sworn as a Public Officer and that allows them to write cites and take midso reports. They can also work as a custody officer.

              Don't know about the exact pay but our Park Safety Specialists can do most of what you listed minus writing certain cites (usually involving juvi).

                Civilian/non-sworn may write citations in California for parking and ordinance violations and also animal violations if animal control is a duty.
                If you see me running try to keep up!

                  Our cities have them as CSO's. They can take misdemeanor reports with no suspect info and issue parking and muni cites.

                    I think some of the City Park Ranger positions might fit, although I though the pay was lower.

                      Yes. We called them Community Service Officers. The "jailer" duties they could receive training for as a collateral (usually overtime) assignment. "Citations" issued were generally for parking violations, but at collision scenes "moving violations" could be issued in the presence of a sworn officers. Park Rangers (also non-sworn) could also perform many of the same functions.

                        I worked in a similar position for a city PD before I became a deputy. Pay was less though.

                          You don't have to be sworn to do any of those things.

                          My department has about 10 non sworn positions doing all of stuff. Code compliance, CSO's, parking enforcement, park rangers, animal control, dispatchers, etc. We have a lot of non sworn people in investigations too.

                          I worked for one department where the traffic cars (accident investigation) were all non sworn, and they only took injury reports.

                            Actually, when I worked for the City of Hemet, we had, and they still do have that position. Its a Community Services Officer. They transported our prisoners and everything, took T/C's, past crime reports that had no suspect info. Past burgs, 594's, etc.. And manned the city jail.

                              CSOs are different at different agencies (and even within agencies at different stations)

                              At the last station I worked, our CSOs were allowed to do none of those things, except for taking non-workable misd crime reports.
