Arizona Ranger Lieutenant Scott Cook is the Executive and Public Relations Officer for Agua Fria Company, Arizona Rangers.
Today’s Modern Arizona Rangers are recognized by Arizona Revised Statues (ARS Title 41) as a non-paid, non-commissioned civilian auxiliary that is available for the purposes of assistance to and support of law enforcement in Arizona. Law enforcement support and assistance services are provided on the request of, and under the direction and supervision of established federal, state, and local law enforcement officials or officers.
The history of the Rangers dates back to the Arizona Territorial Rangers, which were formed by the Arizona Territorial Legislature in 1901. Modeled after Texas Rangers, the Arizona Rangers were created to deal with the infestations of outlaws in the sparsely populated Arizona Territory, especially along the Mexican border.
The Rangers were an elite, well-trained, and originally a secretive agency mounted on quality horses and well equipped with modern weapons at the state’s expense. After eight years of operation, the Rangers had rustlers and outlaws on the run and with their extremely efficient success came their untimely demise. In 1909, due to politics, the Arizona Rangers were disbanded… delegated to the pages of history and folklore.
In the late 1950’s four of the original Territorial Arizona Rangers decided it was time to come out of retirement. On November 22, 1957 the Arizona Rangers were re-established as a volunteer organization and continue to operate to this day.
