The Arizona Rangers were established in 1901 and provided law enforcement in territorial Arizona until 1909. Patagonian Chapo Beaty served as an Arizona Ranger during this time.

It was not only interesting to learn about the history of the organization but it was fascinating to hear that they continue to serve the community 100+ years later.For example, if you saw the security guards who patrolled the Patagonia Fall Festival last weekend, did you know you were looking at current Arizona Rangers in action? Speaking as one of the festival vendors, we appreciated the Rangers help in safeguarding the event.
