Reader Letter: Rangers ready to serve

Ken Dickey's points are well taken in his letter "Bring Back the Arizona Rangers" [Kingman Daily Miner, Feb. 4]. The Kingman Detachment of the Arizona Rangers was officially formed in April 2012, and we should achieve full company status this summer. Currently we have 10 Rangers in our detachment, with applications pending.

The Kingman Detachment recently initiated a meeting with the Kingman Unified School District along with the resource officers of the Kingman Police Department to offer our services to the schools. The Arizona Rangers are assisting law enforcement and schools in other areas of the state and there is no cost to the schools, city or state.

The Arizona Rangers train and qualify to Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board standards on baton, chemical spray and firearms. We carry $5 million per incident liability insurance that covers all sworn Arizona Rangers working a law enforcement assist or at private functions.

It is the goal of the Arizona Rangers to be an active member of the Kingman community. For more information, please contact me at azranger348@frontier.com.

Lt. Bruce Leeming, Commander

Kingman Detachment, High Country Company

Mr. Combs,

The Rangers are a great organization and serve a good purpose however they are not law enforcement. They do not possess any law enforcement or investigative powers that are not provided or establisehed in law for all citizens of the state.

Capt. Nice, thanks for the nice compliments to us liberals. I, too have read so many great things about the liberal mind that I would think everyone is working hard to attain the higher order.

Ms. Dane, you are very wrong. I was a deputy sheriff and a criminal investigator for several years. I would join the Rangers in a New York second, but I do not think they would want a 74 year old man, in a wheel chair . When I was younger I volunteered with the Red Cross, was a scout leader, taught standard and advance first aid cources, was a volunteer tornado spotter for the city, worked search and rescue including water recovery and the list goes on. [I bet you there are many younger people that would step up if given the chance. They, like me did not know the Rangers were still active. A lot of people still volenteer in Kingman. Good examples are the food bank, salvation army, and the senior center. Nearly all., if not all, are volenteers. Volenteerism is not dead. That's a promise..

“I think you have the wrong idea of the Rangers.”

No, Lori fully understands the Arizona Rangers, her comments were directed at the keyboard warriors who are tough as nails on-line, but never actually do anything.

The email address, azranger348@frontier.com is correct.

The Arizona Rangers are an official organization of the State of Arizona as defined in Arizona Revised Statute 41-4201. The Rangers are also a nonprofit organization recognized under section 501(c)(3) of the internal revenue code.

In the 2010 Annual Report to Governor Brewer, the Arizona Rangers performed 60,000 hours of public service, of which 7000 hours were law enforcement assist. This amounted to a savings of $3,145,000 per year in direct labor costs to law enforcement plus another $225,000 in cost avoidance in surveillance and monitoring of meth lab locations.

The March issue of True West magazine has an excellent article, by Marshall Trimble, about the Arizona Rangers. Excellent reading, but be forewarned you may find a piece by me in there and actually like it (horrors!).

Lori – excellent comment about the “keyboard warriors” who are all type and no-go.

I had heard of Arizona Rangers before but I had no idea it was still active. I know there are sheriff's posses and search and rescue volunteers.

It's nice to know that there are still individuals who would donate their time to help out regional law enforcement.

This also helps out taxpayers and helps prevent tyrannical governments ,just like citizen militias as described in the constitution.

Of course, there are blowhards who in their deluded vision of the country, think that everything is fine from the view behind their computer screens.
They think that big nanny government and its bureaucrats in Washington should decide what's best for citizens in Arizona.
Just like the citizens of Germany in the 1930's.

What the he-- are you talking about ??? The Arizona Rangers are law Enforcement . They will not a bunch of tough guys running around playing games. They assist departments all over the state they have a very strict recruiting process. They take the same oath as any police officer. They do they same training the police do.

I think you have the wrong idea of the Rangers.

Well, well, well. Here's your chance, all you big brave blowharts who claim you would use your guns against a "tyrannical" government, you would use your guns to protect your families, homes, and communities, and you are in favor of placing armed guards in all our schools. How about putting your words into action and join the Arizona Rangers?

I'm willing to bet that none of you would have the guts to do so. You're all talk. It's real easy to sit behind a computer screen and tell everyone how tough you are simply because you own guns. So here's your chance to prove it.
