The TSCRA special rangers are supported by TSCRA member dues. We do not receive state or federal funding to help with the more than 1,000 case investigations conducted by the special rangers each year.
Funds raised through the TSCRA Silent Auction are used for advanced training the special rangers need to remain current in law enforcement techniques. Funds also provide the special rangers with better equipment, such as communications and surveillance devices.
TSCRA stations 30 law enforcement professionals around Texas and Oklahoma. Each special ranger is commissioned by the Texas Department of Public Safety and/or the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. Each TSCRA law enforcement professional is a licensed peace officer with the power to search, seize and arrest. They recover up to $5 million in assets each year for cattle producers in Texas and Oklahoma.
Generous TSCRA members and supporters donate items that ranchers want and need — stock trailers, livestock feed, bits, spurs, jewelry and more.
