I thought he was a parking ticket provider, generously leaving love notes for people who overstay their duly allotted time.

No, instead he provides guidance for befuddled visitors to Center City in Philly and keeps an eye on things. He’s a CSR, a Community Service Representative out patrolling the streets. He’s equipped with a two-way radio, ¬†first-aid gear, maps, Tic Tacs, dilithium crystals, dessert forks, a holographic projector, a medicine ball and more.

CSRs are prepared to administer first aid, provide directions, radio police and provide outreach to homeless individuals. 

That’s pretty cool. You can’t put on a white shirt and call yourself a CSR. It requires three weeks of CSR bootcamp and then three more weeks of field exercises before you are good to go.
