Colorado Mounted Rangers

The Colorado Mounted Rangers is a statutorily-authorized, statewide law enforcement auxiliary that assists law enforcement and other first responder agencies across Colorado. Rangers provide up to 50,000 hours of service each year 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.






Your First Step:  Fill out a simple webform then attend a Troop Meeting!

Attendance at a Troop meeting is usually the best way to learn more about CMR and the application process.  To attend a Troop meeting, your first step is to fill out a brief webform.  Please include some basic information about yourself, your occupation, background, experience and why you are interested in becoming a Ranger.  You will then be contacted by an Ranger from the Office of Troop Development who will provide you with additional information to include the meeting location and put you in touch with a Ranger in the selected Troop. 

There is no obligation when you attend a Troop meeting as a guest!
