As an armed uniformed volunteer law enforcement auxiliary, the Arizona Rangers can provide additional manpower at the request of any federal, state, county, or local law enforcement authority.

All Arizona Rangers undergo a state and national background check and investigation, must hold a current Arizona Concealed Weapon (CCW) Permit and complete the Arizona Ranger Training Academy (ARTA). Rangers are certified to carry collapsible batons, OC spray, and meet Arizona POST qualification standards in firearms. They also receive Arizona POST training in handcuffing and defensive tactics.  Arizona Rangers may undertake specialized training by and for an agency that requires special duty assistance for which that specific training is given. Many Arizona Rangers have previous law enforcement and/or military experience.

Arizona Rangers can assist your agency with:

  • Foot patrols of city or county areas
  • Bailiff duty
  • Court security details
  • Prisoner transport
  • Securing crime scenes
  • Second man in the car
  • Traffic control
  • Special public event security (parade, holiday)
  • Disaster support¬†patrols
  • Search and rescue
  • DUI checkpoint assistance
  • School Resource Officer
  • US Forestry and fire department support and assistance

Arizona Rangers work in pairs or with a sworn officer from your department and are always in uniform, armed with primary sidearm and secondary defensive means. Arizona Rangers exercise powers afforded by the Arizona Revised Statutes, or explicitly granted under the authority of the agency being assisted. In order to perform their mission, the Arizona Rangers corporation carries liability insurance.

A list of agencies the Arizona Rangers have worked with is available on request.
