Founded in 1861, the Colorado Rangers served as the first statewide law enforcement agency.

The Colorado Rangers Law Enforcement Shared Reserve (CLER) was formed as a statewide government and P.O.S.T. Certified Law Enforcement Agency supporting 61 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 P.O.S.T. Certified Reserve Academy which will have graduated eight (8) classes by the end of 2019.  Agency strength is projected to reach 250 Police Officers in 2021.
