Colorado Mounted Rangers

The Colorado Mounted Rangers, also known as the Colorado Rangers, is a statutorily-authorized, statewide law enforcement auxiliary that assists law enforcement and other first responder agencies across Colorado. Rangers annually provide more than 50,000 hours of service to the State of Colorado supporting local police and sheriffs departments. Rangers are unpaid and the Auxiliary is not funded by tax dollars. The Rangers are the oldest statewide law enforcement agency in Colorado, originally organized in 1861.
