Arizona Rangers Are Not Peace Officers

The Arizona Rangers are NOT sworn peace officers. Normally, we do not have any more arrest authority than an average civilian. We do not go through the police academy, and we do not have the same extensive training as police officers do. Every Ranger is a volunteer. We understand our boundaries and assist where we can. We are well trained in those areas. Our goal is to handle the time consuming. menial tasks. This allows those police officers extra time to back each other up, protect their communities and go home to their families safely. For smaller departments, the Arizona Rangers are a force multiplier. Take a peek at some duty pics.

What People Are Saying

The Arizona Rangers are a force multiplier for our small department. We use them a lot!

Manuel Amado

Chief of Police

The Arizona Rangers volunteer to put on a uniform, badge and a gun. They go into harms way to help law enforcement. Now, several of our instructors joined the Tucson Company. We volunteer time to train them.

The Arizona Rangers train with us, they listen and they absorb everything. They ask great questions. When it comes time to execute, they impress us. As a Training Sargent, that is refreshing to see and it helps our officers trust them.
