About the Rangers

Established in 1861, the Colorado Rangers served as Colorado’s first statewide law enforcement agency until the 1920s.

The Colorado Rangers Law Enforcement Shared Reserve (CLER) was formed in 2017 as a Colorado government and statewide Law Enforcement Agency supporting numerous Law Enforcement agencies and governments throughout Colorado as their police reserves. CLER operates under the original 1861 agency name of Colorado Rangers with Colonel Ronald Abramson as Agency Chief.

The Colorado Rangers operate their own POST Certified Reserve Police Academy which has graduated nine classes through 2022.

Rangers perform their duties without any compensation in order to give back to the communities as well as to support and serve alongside those who have chosen Law Enforcement as their full time career.
