Getting to know your Texas Rangers

There has been some discussion on the blog about the Texas Rangers’ involvement in the public corruption and open meetings issues we have been having in El Paso.

Many of us were under the impression that the Rangers operated out of Austin and that our access to them would thus be limited.

As it turns out El Paso is home to Texas Rangers Company E which you can read about here.

According to the Texas Rangers web site one of their responsibilities is:

  • Public Corruption Unit: The 81st Texas Legislature created a Public Corruption Unit within the Texas Department of Public Safety under the Texas Ranger Division. The Texas Rangers are tasked with investigating public corruption among public officials, law enforcement officers, and others holding positions of public trust.

The telephone number for Company E is (915) 834-7664.

We deserve better

    Yep! Along with the TXDPS Ranger Co E stationed in El Paso, there is a TXDPS forensic crime laboratory in El Paso too!

    Had no idea there was a local office. Thanks for the information. And those are definitely Texas Ranger hats with a big T.
